You will claim your wife as your spouse(in the heading of the return) rather than as a dependent even if she has no income of her own.

There will be no effect on your tax return because she is a full time student unless you will be claiming dependent care credit (for dependent care while you work and she attends school). Her tuition, books and related fees may also be an adjustment OR a credit on your return as well.
