Dear Mentor:

With my green card, am I domestic or international student?

I just got my permanent residency (green card) for the USA. I have done my graduation from India (B.Tech. Computer Engineering). The problem is that now I don't know my status for applying to colleges in USA for my Master's. The question is whether I am an international student or a domestic student? Kindly clear this doubt so that I can then think about opportunities for me in terms of financial aids, etc.

Dear Green Green-Card Holder:

With a green card in hand, you will not be an international or foreign student. You are a legal permanent resident of the United States of America. You are eligible for all the benefits afforded to a local student, such as financial aid and government loans. Enjoy the benefits of the green card!
