Is it possible to add Cuban Universities into the section where it asks for where your parents graduated from?

Hi, so both my parents and grandparents all have bachelor's degrees or higher, so I am not really a first-generation student. However, they all graduated in Cuba from Universities that arent nationally accepted unlike the University of Havanna. So when I tried to put what Universities they all graduated from, it didn't show up which made sense. But I was wondering if there was a way I can put it like a foreign university or something like that. If not is there a way to say I am the first generation going to college in the US?
