Our citizenship preparation classes help students to become US citizens by developing their knowledge of civics, the N-400 application process, and the English language skills they need to successfully pass the naturalization interview. A recipient of FY2009 and FY2011 USCIS grant awards, the Institute is nationally recognized as having high quality citizenship preparation programs. The breadth of our citizenship instructional services enables us to meet the needs of a wide range of students, from those with literacy-level to advanced levels of English. More than 250 students attend our citizenship classes annually.
Registration hours for daytime citizenship classes are: Monday – Tuesday 8:30 am-1:00 pm, and Wednesday 8:30 am – 10:00 am. Registration for all other citizenship programs is by appointment. Call 314-773-9090 x109 to schedule an appointment. A permanent resident card is required to register for citizenship classes.
Students must be Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs), and have the appropriate level English language skills for the class in which they wish to enroll. They must be at least 17 years old and not enrolled in a public secondary education institution. Additionally, students must have had LPR status for a minimum of 2 ½ to 4 years, depending on class placement. A permanent resident card is required to register for citizenship class.
