All applicants are requested to complete Part 1 with their current citizen status.
In the MIT freshman admissions process, you are considered an international applicant if you are not a United States Citizen or a United States Permanent Resident (Green Card holder). Applicants awaiting Green Cards are considered to have Non-U.S. Citizen/Non-U.S. Permanent Resident status. Undocumented applicants should list their country of citizenship when applying.
An applicant's citizenship, or lack of documentation, will not have any impact on their chances of admission at MIT or the availability of full need-based financial aid.
