Back to College after GC approval, applying for...

Hello,

I went back to college right after my GC got approved and it was really nice to pay in district tuition; but after books for 5 classes, my husband spent quite a bit of money. I already registered for Spring semester, going full time again, and payment is due until January. My question is, can I apply for financial aid with my conditional GC? or is it only a privilege for USC?

Thank you

You are eligible for financial aid. Being a conditional resident doesn't matter. You will be qualified for federal student loan regardless of income but in my state, if your income is low or none at all, most likely you will qualify for Grants ( money you don't have to pay back). Keep in mind that everything is based on your tax return, household size etc.

(organizer hat off)

As a Permanent Resident (GC holder) you can apply for college grants and scholarships. However, as my Permanent Resident step-son soon realized, he was not eligible for many college grants and scholarships since he is not yet a US Citizen. It seems that the grants and scholarship he applied for had a US Citizen requirement.

YMMV.
