To be considered for admission to the English Language Institute or as an undergraduate or graduate student at Gallaudet, you must submit a copy of your alien registration card–also known as a U.S. Permanent Resident Card (green card), front and back, and include your resident alien ID number and the date the ID number was issued.
The term “international student” means an individual who:
If you have applied for U.S. permanent residency, please note that you will be considered an international student and be charged international student tuition rates, until you submit a copy of your green card to International Affairs (IA).
If you are a lawful permanent resident of the United States, and provide a copy of your green card to IA, you will be considered a domestic student and charged tuition accordingly. If you fail to submit a copy of your green card, you will be considered an international student and charged tuition according to those rates. If you have lost your green card, you must request a replacement card and provide IA a copy upon its arrival. IA cannot accept an alien registration number (A number); until proof has been provided you will be charged international tuition rates.
Without proof of this identification document you will be blocked from registering for courses and proceeding with business registration, which is required prior to the start of each semester.
*NOTE: IA staff members are not authorized to offer any legal advice or guidance to anyone wishing to become a permanent U.S. resident. For more information about permanent residency in general, we recommend consultation with a qualified immigration attorney. For more information, visit http://www.uscis.gov/greencard.
