This is a state-supported program, and therefore we will accept only U.S. Citizens and Permanent Resident Aliens with a “Final” resident alien card in their possession. At the discretion of the admissions office, asylees and those pending a permanent resident alien card may be sent a secondary application if they communicate with the admissions office that they will have a permanent resident alien card in hand by November 1 of the application cycle. It will be up to the applicant to determine if they want to submit their secondary application and fee before receiving their permanent resident alien card. Fees will not be refunded if the deadline is not met. We will not be allowed to process any application that does not meet these requirements.
