Assuming that the annuity in question is a "deferred" annuity (that is, that it is not already providing regular annuity payments), the answer depends upon whether you're over 59 1/2 or not. If you're not, any distributions from that annuity will be taxable as Ordinary Income AND subject to a 10% penalty tax - 10% of the amount of the distribution (IRC Sect. 72(q)). Not a very attractive result. If you're over 59 1/2 and still attending school, BRAVO! But the distribution from your annuity will still be taxable (but without that 10% penalty tax).
