You should say he was a full time student during the year.  Unless he is over 23 then you can't claim him.  But if he was under 24 on Dec 31 and a full time student for 5 months of the year you can claim him no matter how much he makes.  Go back though My Info and check your answers.

based on what you provided he would be a qualifying child for 2020 unless he is over 24 at the end of the year. to be a qualifying relative (a dependent)  his gross earnings must be less than $4,300 for 2020.

Be sure he checks the box on his return that says someone else can claim him.  

 

Online is only good for 1 return per account.  But you can use the same email address for 5 accounts.   How to start another return in the Online version
