Are dependent college students eligible for stimulus checks?

I received a call that my grandmother and cousin both have a pending stimulus check for their accounts due to COVID-19. I am a full-time college student who has worked part-time since I enrolled in school and have done my taxes. But, my schooling is basically free from my mom's VA benefits and I also claim myself as a dependent on my tax refund...even though my mom does not do taxes (Idk why but I just know she doesn't).

Do I even qualify for a stimulus check?

    If you said you can be a dependent on someone else's tax return, that might block the check coming to you.

    No.  Dependents don’t qualify.  Unless they are younger than age 17.

    No. You do not.

    Generally speaking, if you file your own taxes and make under 100K then you are eligible.
