    ...as long as it is full time enrollment at an accredited college you should be able to claim them until age 23....you should be able to do this through the ebenefits portal

    You will need to talk with a VA advisor to be certain, unless someone here chimes in that is the same situation and knows for certain.

    I think I'd go with the "don't ask too many questions" concept here.

    She's enrolled in an accredited college, therefore she's a student. No need to muddy the waters.
