USCIS Revises Guidance on Naturalization Civics Educational Requirement

USCIS updated guidance in the USCIS Policy Manual regarding the educational requirements for naturalization. The update, effective March 1, 2021, provides that USCIS will revert to administering the 2008 civics test to applicants who filed for naturalization before December 1, 2020, or who will file on or after March 1, 2021. There will be a brief period during which USCIS may offer both the 2020 civics test and the 2008 civics test to accommodate certain naturalization applicants who filed on or after December 1, 2020, and before March 1, 2021, and are scheduled for an interview before April 19, 2021.
