This question cannot be left blank.

Select the option that indicates your citizenship status.

Select U.S. citizen (or U.S. national) if you are a U.S. citizen or U.S. national. A person is a United States citizen by birth or by naturalization. Persons (except for the children of foreign diplomatic staff) who are born in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and in most cases, Puerto Rico (PR), the U.S. Virgin Islands (VI), Guam (GU), and the Northern Marianna Islands (MP) are U.S. citizens, as are most persons born abroad to parents (or a parent) who are citizens.

Select Neither citizen nor eligible noncitizen if you are in the U.S. on:

Note: If you are neither a citizen nor an eligible noncitizen, you are not eligible for federal student aid. Therefore, we will not calculate an EFC for you, nor will we provide you with an estimate of federal student aid eligibility.
