Can i claim my nephew as a dependant if hes in the university of puerto rico?

Likely.

Here are the qualification for claiming him as a dependent child:

*            be your child (or adoptive or foster child), sibling, niece, nephew or grandchild;
*            be under age 19, or under age 24 and a full-time student for at least five months of the year; or be permanently disabled, regardless of age;
*            have lived with you for more than half the year; and
*            have provided no more than half his or her own support for the year.
Time at university is not considered time living away from you.

To claim him as an adult as a dependent:

·       You provided more than half of their support.

·       They made less than $4,150 in gross taxable income. 

·       They are not a dependent on someone else’s taxes.

·       They are not filing a joint return with someone else.

They are a U.S. citizen, resident alien, national, or a Canadian or Mexican resident.
