Can I claim EIC for a non-qualifying child?

Hi guys, Any help regarding the following is greatly appreciated: Can I claim EIC for my son, who is not my qualifying child, given that he was a full time student for 5 months in 2017 and made >25k from work employment that same year? I earned 45k in 2017.


I am not able to claim him as a qualifying child or dependent due to the relationship, residence, age, support rules, but was wondering if I can claim him for EIC. Thanks!
