F1 student, non-resident or resident?

I am a F-1 student who entered the US in April 2015. I completed my undergrad, did one year of OPT for a year after, then started graduate school when that year was up. 2020 will be my 5th calendar year, does this mean I'm now considered resident alien?

Yes, you will be considered as a resident alien in 2020 if you pass the Substantial Presence test.
