I am a 19-year-old college student with a 3-year-old child. I have been providing for my daughter even though I stay with my mother. Can I claim my daughter as a dependent this year since I have been working?

In order to claim your daughter as a dependent, you have to provide more than one-half of her support. It sounds like your mother is doing that.
