She can only transfer it to her spouse or common-law.

If your daughter was 18 or less, you can claim. If she were 19, and single (I assume so from way you asked the question), she must claim, but as you mentioned, it would yield no benefit.

You've been given two answers above

IF (daughter's age <= 18)
You can claim it
ELSE
You cannot claim it and the credit goes to waste
