As a GreenCard owner, you don’t have to go through the tedious and complicated process of obtaining a student visa because you can stay in the United States permanently and without restrictions.
With such a residence permit in your hands, you are also considered an in-state student and the tuition fees are reduced by up to 80%!
Elite universities such as At this point, Harvard or the Massachusetts Institute of Technology unfortunately make no distinction between in-state and out-of-state students, while at the University of Florida, GreenCard owners can save up to 80% on tuition fees! Here, the choice of the university literally pays off.
Another advantage of the Permanent Resident Card: when looking for a part-time job in the USA, non-Americans who study are no longer subject to the applicable restrictions. In contrast to students with a visa, as a GreenCard holder you can work “off campus” in the first year of study. This is a significant advantage, because it gives you a much larger selection of job offers.
There are several ways you can apply for a GreenCard, but the easiest is to take part in the GreenCard lottery, where the US government raffles over 55,000 GreenCards each year.
