Stimulus check - Will I get it?

Here my situation:

 

I was in college in 2019 and graduated in 2019, so I was claimed as a dependent by my parents on 2019 taxes. So according to what I've been seeing I will not be getting a stimulus check this year. However, in 2020, I've been living on my own as an independent and have been an independent throughout this outbreak. Will I be able to receive the stimulus check in 2021 when filing my 2020 taxes?

If a child can be claimed, even if they are not actually claimed, they don't qualify.  However, if in 2020 they do qualify as an independent, then they should get a credit in 2021 (for the full $1200).
