Can I discharge student loans in a bankruptcy if I am only a co-signer?

Unfortunately, no.

Co-signing means that you are guarantying payment on a loan. You are promising to pay if the primary cannot make the payments. You are on the hook too.

You just have to make sure that the primary person makes the payments, otherwise you are still obligated and there is nothing you can do in a bankruptcy to get rid of the obligation.
