First-year students are those that are currently enrolled in high school, or have completed high school and have not attended a college or university outside of their high school experience. Sometimes, these students are also referred to as “freshmen,” regardless of their class standing upon entering the university. In general, students who take college courses during high school but are considered students at their high school fall into this category.
Domestic students are those that are U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents. This includes those U.S. nationals living overseas in military or diplomatic zones.
