Eligible U.S. Citizenship Status

The Office of Student Services gives full financial aid consideration to United States citizens and eligible non-citizens. Eligible non-citizens are:

  • Permanent U.S. residents
  • Holder of an Arrival Departure Record (I-94) for anyone of the following designations:
    • Refugee
    • Asylum Granted
    • Parolee
    • Victim of Human Trafficking

Eligible non-citizens must provide documentation of permanent residency or citizenship status. Acceptable forms of documentation include:

  • Resident Alien Card (I-551)
  • Arrival/Departure Record (I-94) with a temporary I-551 stamp that has not expired
  • Conditional Permanent Resident Alien Card (I-551C)
  • T-Visa (T-1, T-2, T-3, etc)

Important Information for Students with a Pending United States Permanent Residency Status:

Prospective Students:

  • Must document permanent residency by the admission deposit deadline. If you will not be able to document permanent residency status, you are not eligible for financial aid.
  • If granted permanent residency later in the academic year, you will be considered for financial aid at that time. Be sure to submit a complete financial aid application.

Continuing Students:

  • Must document permanent residency with financial aid application.
  • If documentation comes in after the start of the academic year, you will be considered for financial aid at that time.
