You can only know from your own records. Check your (and/or your parent's) tax returns for all the years you were an undergrad.

If you do not qualify for the AOTC, because it was claimed on you 4 times already, you may still claim the Lifetime Learning Credit and count both your undergrad & grad expenses. You may only count undergrad expenses in claiming the AOTC.
