My father went to trade school, how do I describe his education level on my applications?Answered
On all of the college applications I have started so far, the parent information section asks for the education level of each of my parents. The options typically include: "High School or Less," "Some College," "Associate's Degree," "Bachelor's Degree," or "Graduate Degree." My father went to trade school for plumbing, so none of these options describe his education level. He completed the plumbing license test to become a licensed plumber, but I am unsure as to whether or not this would be equivalent to an associate's degree. Could anyone provide any insight?

I’m not certain but I believe it’s an associate degree as it contains professional skills/non 4 year higher education.
