To be considered a full time student for 2017 - the person must be a full time student at least 5 months during that tax year.

So far - that person is a full time student and he/she did not provide more than half of own support - and because the age is below 24 on last day of 2017 - he/she is a qualifying child and therefore a dependent.

So - yes.

Student defined. To qualify as a student, your child must be, during some part of each of any 5 calendar months of the year:
1. A full-time student at a school that has a regular teaching staff, course of study, and a regularly enrolled student body at the school, or
2. A student taking a full-time, on-farm training course given by a school described in (1), or by a state, county, or local government agency.
The 5 calendar months don't have to be consecutive.
Full-time student. A full-time student is a student who is enrolled for the number of hours or courses the school considers to be full-time attendance.
