Can you claim a child as a fulltime student if they withdraw from classes in April, or do they have to wait until May to make it into the 5th month?

They need to be enrolled for a full semester, so if they withdrew in April and they would not be qualify.

OK, but since you can claim the AOTC if they withdraw and you don't get a refund (which we won't this late), as long as he withdraws on or after May 1 we can claim he was a fulltime student?  He doesn't have to take finals/finish the semester?
