Green Card Applicant Initiative

Cornell will offer institutional financial aid to admitted and currently enrolled undergraduate international students who have been long-term Green Card applicants but have not yet achieved Legal Permanent Resident (Green Card) status. Undergraduate students who are determined to have satisfied Cornell's documentation requirements will be eligible for need-blind admissions and need-based financial aid like any U.S. citizen or permanent resident.

As part of the aid application process, students will be asked to document the following:

-Born on or after June 16, 1981;
-Came to the United States before reaching 16th birthday;
-Continuously resided in the U.S. since June 15, 2008 up to the present time;
-Currently in school, has graduated high school, or obtained a general education certificate (GED);
-Filed an I-485 Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status by no later than June 15, 2008;
-Meets financial aid application requirements.

If you meet the above criteria, please contact a financial aid staff member to discuss the financial aid application process.
