Your question is unclear.

On immigration forms you need to always be truthful.

If you are asking about college form, you should disclose that you are an adjustment of status applicant, if you have in fact filed the adjustment of status application.

My colleague is correct. It is difficult to understand what you are asking. If you have filed to AOS and you are waiting for an interview you cannot claim you already ahve LPR status. You need to contact the SEVIS agent at the college who should be able to guide you through the prcess of applying as an alien for admission to the college.

You must be accurate on the forms as there are repercussions for inaccurate informations.
Most importantly do not claim to be a US citizen on a form if you are not.
