Oh, this is a very tough situation. You can't get financial aid without your daughter being a U.S. Citizen. But there may be a workaround. Check out this article at Finaid.org. It's quirky, but if she has a SS number, she can fill out the form -- still checking the box that says she is not a U.S. Citizen. The FAFSA will be rejected -- but the info in it will still be on file (and accessible to schools) --- according to this article from a very respected source.Be sure to contact the financial aid offices of the schools to which she plans to apply. Let them know the info is lurking in the FAFSA system. Also, they may have some special program to aid "foreign students."And tell your high school guidance officer about the problem. There may be some scholarship money that does not require a financial aid disclosure. They can also contact the prospective colleges, to help explain the situation and give a great reference for your daughter. It's amazing what this network of guidance counselors and college financial aid officers can come up with in a tough situation!Finally, you will still qualify for private student loans. They are expensive and require your good credit, but they can certainly be a help.
