The Cultural Development & Wellness Center Adult Education Citizenship Program helps students prepare for the United States citizenship exam (also known as the U.S. Naturalization Interview and Test). We have in-person and online classes for adult learners who are at a level 2 or higher in both speaking and reading English. Classes are offered online and in person.

Our 13-week Citizenship Program costs $40, with $20 refunded to students after testing. We have a high rate of interview and exam success and have helped many individuals become full United States citizens.

Additional Programming

We also offer other resources to help students become full U.S. citizens and provide support after they have been naturalized.

Application Assistance

The Citizenship Program offers assistance with the Application for Naturalization (N-400) and Fee Waiver (I-912). Form preparation and assistance is offered through private appointments and at citizenship workshops.

Citizenship workshops are open to all eligible community members. Workshops are offered at least 3 times annually. All workshop applications are reviewed by a reputable immigration attorney. In most cases we encourage students to be at a Level 4 or higher before submitting their Application for Naturalization (N-400).

Post-Naturalization Assistance

We continue to help students after they become citizens with post-naturalization assistance. The Citizenship Program can help current students apply for a passport (DS-11) and register to vote.

Citizenship Celebrations

The Citizenship Program honors new U.S. Citizens at our citizenship celebrations. These celebrations are attended by students, their family members, and local leaders.
