Care on the Corner®
Registration for Fall 2015 Citizenship Preparation September 9 and 16, 2015
Preparatory classes for U.S. Citizenship will start on Monday, October 5 and finish on Monday, November 9 from
7:30-9:30 pm at Care on the Corner, 333 Franklin Avenue in Hasbrouck Heights. Registration and Testing will take place on Wednesdays, September 9 and 16 at 7:00 p.m., 229 Terrace Avenue in Hasbrouck Heights (corner of Terrace and Jefferson Avenues).
The requirements for the class include: "Permanent" Green Card for 5 years (or 3 years if married to U.S. Citizen),
ability to speak, read, and write English, good moral character, knowledge of U.S. history and government.
The best preparation is studying English as you will need an ESL Level 2 ability to pass the Citizenship test.
Steps in applying for U.S. Citizenship are:
Recently the Newark office has slowed down processing with only one Oath Ceremony daily;
preceded by very detailed background checks based on fingerprints. Those who pass the exam and have all of their
background checks completed will take the Oath of Allegiance and receive citizenship the same day. Those with
incomplete background checks have to return at a later date for Oath and citizenship.
Those who fail the exam have a second chance – usually within 3-6 months you will receive another
Appointment. Anyone who fails twice must begin the process again and pay the fee again.
For more information about the U.S. Citizenship class or to pre-register, please call the Care on the Corner office, at 201-288-9460. A registration form along with a non-refundable $10 processing fee, must be completed for each student. Financial assistance is available.
Books will be available for purchase at the time of registration.
