Citizenship Classes

CARECEN offers citizenship classes to help legal residents pass the citizenship test given by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, so they can assume full participation in U.S. civic society. Through the program, adults learn about U.S. history and government and are encouraged to take the citizenship exam. Enrollment is open and continuous. 

To register, please bring your green card, and arrive during the first 30 minutes of the desired class. The residency card is used to determine if you are eligible to interview in Spanish (English Exempt ).

  • Citizenship Class -- Lasts 13 weeks. Students develop a foundation in the 100 civics questions in the citizenship exam, as well as learning to read, recognize and write the vocabulary required in the reading and dictation portions of the citizenship interview.
  • English Exempt Class -- Lasts 10 weeks. Tailored for students who have been approved to take an abridged version of the test or who are taking the test in Spanish.
