Yes, you probably can.

Generally, you can claim your child as a dependent if:

·      The child is a U.S. citizen or resident who lived with you over half the year;

·      The child is under age 19, or under age 24 if a full-time student;

·      You provide over half of their support;

·      The child is not claimed as a dependent by anyone else; and

·      The child is not filing a joint return.

For more information, please see Rules for Claiming a Dependent on Your Tax Return.
