I thought I could lay my financial aid worries to rest now that I had gotten all my documents in, but nope...apparently all my colleges now require proof of my citizenship. I just became a citizen last Oct, which is why I suppose the SSA/ISN failed to confirm my citizenship status. My parents were naturalized that day. I was still 17 so I automatically gained citizenship too, but I have no proof of it at the time being. My parents filed a N600 back in early Nov, so I should be getting my Certificate of Citizenship soon, hopefully by April.
My question is, will this throw off my financial aid processing, or is that on a school-by-school basis?? I plan to call (all six - thank GOD I did not apply to more colleges) tomorrow, but right now I'm freaking out and wondering if anyone has experience with this.
