I am a non-resident alien for tax purposes. Can I claim the educational tax credits or the earned income credit?

No. Non-resident aliens can not claim the educational tax credit or the earned income credit. Once you qualify to file as a resident alien for tax purposes or become a green card holder, you may be eligible to claim these credits.
