In September 2007, USCIS introduced a redesigned (new) naturalization test. Naturalization applicants will have the opportunity to take the redesigned test starting in October 2008.
The civics test is an oral test and the USCIS Officer will ask the applicant up to 10 of the 100 civics questions. An applicant must answer 6 out of 10 questions correctly to pass the civics portion of the naturalization test.
Although USCIS is aware that there may be additional correct answers to the 100 civics questions, applicants are encouraged to respond to the civics questions using the answers provided below.
