  • The eligible student is you, your spouse, or a dependent on your tax return
  • For the full credit, your 2023 modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) is less than $90,000 ($180,000 if you are filing jointly)
    • For a reduced credit, your MAGI is between $80,000 and $90,000 ($160,000 and $180,000 if you're filing jointly)
