Citizenship Classes

Want to become an American citizen?  Trade your Green Card for an American Passport!  Adult Literacy Barrow offers FREE classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you have had a Green Card for five years, or have been married to an American Citizen for three years, you can apply for US citizenship.

Our classes include instruction and preparation for:

  • Filling out the application (Form N-400),
  • Financial assistance for qualified applicants to help with the $725 fee,
  • Examples and scenarios for the actual interview, and
  • Interview practice for the four parts of the naturalization interview.

The naturalization interview consists of:

  • Speaking Test:  Your oral skills will be determined by a USCIS Officer by reviewing your Form N-400 Application for Naturalization.
  • Reading Test:  You must read aloud one out of three sentences to demonstrate an ability to read in English.
  • Writing Test:  You must write one out of three sentences correctly to demonstrate an ability to write in English.
  • Civics Test:  During your naturalization interview, you will be asked up to 10 questions from the list of 100 questions. You must answer six of the ten questions correctly to pass the civics test.

A practice interview will be conducted by Adult Literacy Barrow prior to your actual interview.
