Late reply I know but I finally remembered the other thing about the last year a child is in college. Because they are a fulltime student for tax purposes, they can't qualify for the saver's credit -

If they are fortunate, they won't qualify for it after that. I have at least one who did. Solvent and self-supporting but still qualifies for at least a partial credit.
