Default FAFSA for I-485 applicant

My daughter is in college and I was wondering if there is any chance of getting a FAFSA loan for her with I-485 application applied in July 2007.

Thanks

Default Your daughter should be able to apply FAFSA

I have seen people getting FAFSA loan with pending I-485. If you are in non-immigrant visa status even H1B then you can NOT apply for FAFSA. But if you are in pending I-485 working on EAD then should be good. Better talk with school advisor for more detail.

Good luck
BK

Yes, pending I-485 applicants can absolutely get FAFSA. I have received funding for my MBA at Haas and know many others who have received funding as well. If you need any information, send me a PM and I'll respond to your queries

I am not sure if this is what you are looking for...please check this. It says someone on "Parole" may be eligible non-citizen.

Source:Completing the FAFSA 07-08/The Application Questions(14-31)
Citizenship status. You can receive federal student financial aid only if you are a U.S. citizen or an eligible noncitizen. If you have changed from a noncitizen to a citizen and have not informed the SSA, contact the SSA to update your status. Otherwise, the SSA may report that you are not a citizen, and you will have to provide citizenship documentation before receiving aid.

For financial aid purposes, an eligible noncitizen is one of the following:

A U.S. permanent resident who has a Permanent Resident Card (I-551 or I-151)
A conditional permanent resident (I-551C)
A noncitizen with an Arrival-Departure Record (I-94) from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) (specifically, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) showing any one of the following designations: "Refugee," "Asylum Granted," "Parole" (the I-94 must confirm 'paroled for a minimum of 1-year and status' has not expired), or "Cuban-Haitian Entrant"
If you are neither a citizen nor an eligible noncitizen, you are not eligible for federal student aid; for example, you are not eligible if you are in the U.S. on one of the following:

An F-1, F-2, or M-1 student visa
A J-1 or J-2 exchange visitor visa
A B-1 or B-2 visitor visa
A G series visa (pertaining to international organizations)
An H series or L series visa (allowing temporary employment in the U.S.)
A "Notice of Approval to Apply for Permanent Residence" (I-171 or I-464)
An I-94 stamped "Temporary Protected Status"
However, you may be eligible for state or institutional aid and may therefore wish to complete the FAFSA to apply for that aid. If you are completing a paper FAFSA, fill in oval C. On FAFSA on the Web, indicate that you are not a citizen by using the drop down menu. Please note, however, that if you do not have a Social Security number, the processor will not process your FAFSA. If you are in this situation, you should contact your school for information on how to proceed.

My son got his FAFSA approved last year. I am on H1 and he is on H4. Your daughter either way on H4 or EAD qualifies for FAFSA. If you have questions, you can call FAFSA directly and they are very helpful.

Good Luck..

RV

It all depends upon the school. You just need to show them that your 485 is pending and you have AP with you, you have used it or not does not matter. But the most important thing is to convince the school. One of the senior members, had posted their own experience and it has helped me a lot to get the FAFSA approved for my spouse. Let me know if you have any questions. I will also try to find that thread.

If you've used an AP to re-enter the country ..based on I-485 filing, you can apply for FAFSA.

You first need to apply for SSN based on your pending I-485 application.
