For 2021 only, being a part-time student will not exclude you from claiming the EIC. But you have to meet all the other requirements for the EIC, including not being a dependent. You cannot claim the EIC if your parents, or anyone else, could claim you as a dependent, whether or not they actually claim you.
The lowering of the minimum age for EIC is for 2021 only. For any other year you must be at least 25 years old to claim the EIC.
