Would I be considered a first generation college student if my mom took a handful of classes and my dad has an Associates degree?

    Each school defines what it means by First Gen. There is no box to check on your college app saying First Gen. You put down what education level each of your parents attained. Some schools use the cut-off level of a bachelor's degree. Others an Associates.
