  • Note that Social Security cards and driver's licenses are not acceptable forms of documentation of citizenship or national status. 
  • If you are an eligible non-citizen with a valid resident alien card or other acceptable eligible non-citizen statuses, as listed on the Eligible Non-citizen Verification form, you must correct your FAFSA by changing question #14 "Are you a U.S. citizen" to: "No, but I am an eligible non-citizen" and provide your Alien Registration Number on FAFSA question #15.
