About the Civics Test
Beginning on April 19, 2021, USCIS is administering only the 2008 civics test to N-400 applicants at their initial interview appointment, regardless of their filing date. USCIS will no longer offer the 2020 civics test at the initial interview, but will continue to provide study materials for the 2020 test for those applicants who are eligible to choose between the 2008 or 2020 civics test at their re-exam or N-336 hearing.
Fees: It currently costs $725 to apply to become a U.S. citizen. See application materials.
- Applicants 75 years of age or older do not need to pay a biometric fee. They only need to pay the $640 filing fee.
- No fee is required for military applicants filing under section 328 or 329 of the INA.
Request for Reduced Fee
Use this form to request a reduced filing fee for Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, if your documented annual household income is greater than 150 percent but not more than 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines at the time you file.
