Proof of citizenship
If you must document your status as a citizen or national, one of the following documents is acceptable:
- A copy of the student’s birth certificate showing that they were born in the United States, which includes Puerto Rico (on or after Jan. 13, 1941), Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands (on or after Jan. 17, 1917), American Samoa, Swain’s Island, or the Northern Mariana Islands, unless the person was born to foreign diplomats residing in the U.S.
- A U.S. passport (current or expired), except limited passports, which are issued for periods of less than five years. In the case of nationals who are not citizens, the passport will be stamped “noncitizen National.”
- A copy of Form FS-240 (Consular Report of Birth Abroad), FS-545 (Certificate of birth issued by a foreign service post), or DS-1350 (Certification of Report of Birth). These are State Department documents.
- A Certificate of Citizenship (N-560 or N-561), issued by the Immigration and Naturalization Service to individuals who derive U.S. citizenship through a parent.
- A Certificate of Naturalization (N-550 or N-570), issued by the Immigration and Naturalization Service through a federal or state court, or through administrative naturalization after 1990 to those who are individually naturalized.
- A Social Security card or driver’s license isn’t acceptable for documenting citizenship or national status, since noncitizens and nonnationals can also have these forms of identification.
