JUNEAU - U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is hosting a free hour-long information session on April 26. The objective is to help immigrants better understand the naturalization process, including the content of the naturalization test and to become familiar with free educational resources and materials available from the agency.
USCIS personnel will be available to discuss the naturalization process step-by-step. They will provide information about eligibility and residency requirements, application forms, fees, the background security check and processing times. Participants will also see sample questions from the test and will receive an overview of U.S. history and civic principles. They'll view a recorded demonstration of the citizenship interview. Free educational materials will be handed out while supplies last. The session will be held at 4:30 p.m. on April 26 at the Southeast Regional Resource Center, The Learning Center, at 210 Ferry Way.
