Citizenship Requirements for Federal Student Aid

To qualify for federal student aid, you must be a citizen or eligible noncitizen. Generally, you are an eligible noncitizen if you are:

  • A permanent U.S. resident with a Permanent Resident Card (I-551);
  • A conditional permanent resident (I-551C); or
  • The holder of an Arrival-Departure Record (I-94) from the Department of Homeland Security showing any one of the following designations: "Refugee," "Asylum Granted," "Parole" (I-94 confirms that you were paroled for a minimum of one year and status has not expired), "Victim of human trafficking," T-Visa holder (T-1, T-2, T-3, etc.) or "Cuban-Haitian Entrant."

If you are in the U.S. on an F1 or F2 student visa, a J1 or J2 exchange visitor visa, or a G series visa (pertaining to international organizations), you are not eligible for federal student aid.
