N-400 Citizenship Form: Study Guide and Resources

The Immigrant Learning Center has created a N-400 study guide to help people who are applying for citizenship. Everyone who applies for citizenship must fill out the N-400 form. They will be asked questions about the N-400 in their citizenship interview. The study guide explains what each question means and has answers that the applicant can use. In the citizenship interview, the interviewer might ask what words in the N-400 form mean. The study guide includes definitions for words that English learners might not know. Click on the button below to download the study guide.

The Immigrant Learning Center has also created videos to help people with the N-400 form. Each video focuses on a different topic that applicants may have trouble with. The videos are available below.
