Information and Frequently
Asked Questions:
The Naturalization Process
The Naturalization process may have many steps but taken one at a time it can turn out to be a simple process. The package you send to immigration consists of information regarding your background. In your application package you will include:

The N-400 form (application for Naturalization)
A copy of your alien registration card.
Two 2"X2" color photographs
You are also required to take your fingerprints; the INS will send you an appointment
     after they receive your application.

INS will then send you an interview date. At this interview you should be able to answer questions about your application in English, and answer the U.S. history and government questions in English. The interviewer will dictate a sentence to you, which you need to be able to understand and write in English. If you pass the interview, you will be scheduled for a hearing where a naturalization judge will ask you to take the Oath of Allegiance to the United States.
Prepare Yourself...
At the ELP/Citizenship Center you will have the opportunity to take citizenship classes, which are offered throughout the week. These classes will prepare you for the history examination administered by the INS, and the interview. You will receive the 100 questions based on INS History/Government. A complimentary citizenship preparation book and cassette at the time of registration.
