Switzerland Rail Travel - Swiss Pass eligibility

I am going to be going to Switzerland as an intern for around 5 months starting in April. While I am there I definitely want to do some traveling to see the country! The Swiss Pass seems like it would be a good idea for me, but I am unsure if I am allowed to buy it. I currently live in the US and will return when my 5 months is over but while I am there I will be renting an apartment and have to register with the Swiss authorities etc. On the raileurope site it says "Residents of Switzerland & Liechtenstein are not eligible to purchase or use this rail pass." Does this mean I will not be able to purchase a Swiss Pass? Any info would be great!

Thanks in advance, and happy travels!
