We will be watching this forum throughout Coronavirus/Covid emergencies to post information and to answer your questions about affected US immigration and visas:
Do you mean that person on AOS is elligible for FAFSA aid?
QUOTE=marlon2006]I am sure that the state university here DOES NOT consider you to be eligible for in state UNTIL you have an approved I-485.
Permanent U.S. Residents: If you have final approval of your Permanent Resident immigrant status, you may apply for Washington State residency if your application for adjustment to Permanent Resident status was filed at least 12 months prior to the beginning of the quarter for which you are requesting to be classified a Washington resident, and if you meet the requirements listed under Establishing a bona fide domicile (with the exception of registering to vote)."
At least t seems that folks on AOS are already eligible for FAFSA aid ? Well, that would be something that may help.

So I don't understand the logic of this 'Parolee" being qualify for Fed aid while a person with pending I-485 for say more than 5 or 6 years and never left USA is not qualified!!
Anyway, we're planning to go to India this Summer, so my son will get the "Parolee" stamping and hopefully he would qualify for the aid when he goes to college in couple of years.
I am now in the same boat. UMBC is not accepting pending AOS Receipt as a proof for Maryland Residency for in-state tuition. If you don't mind, could you email me at email@example.com on any information on how to convince them.This thread is retrieved after a long time. I have update on for this issue.
MD university granted in-state tuition fees for my son, who is on I 485 pending state for more than one year.
Bottom line : It is very difficult to convince authority about I 485 pending status. You need lot of hard work to convince them
He also got FAFSA as his I 94 was stamped as Parolee.
