US Civics and History Test

Naturalization Interview

You will also take a civics test to evaluate your knowledge and understanding of US history and government. The test will be administered in English, unless you qualify for a language accommodation. Even if you are exempt from the English test, you still need to take the civics test in the language of your origin or qualify for an N-648 waiver.

Please note that the changes in the civics test which were  adopted by the Trump administration in 2020 are no longer valid, as president Biden’s administration has reversed this decision. You will be given the 2008 version of the test with 100 possible questions. During your test, you will be asked at least 10 questions in English. You must answer correctly at least 6 of the 10 questions to pass the civics test in English. All questions on the test are asked verbally by an immigration officer.
