Naturalization Civics Test Update

USCIS announced today that it is reverting to the 2008 version of the naturalization civics test beginning March 1, 2021.

Not sure which test you will be taking?  Included in the announcement:  “Applicants who filed their application for naturalization on or after Dec. 1, 2020, and before March 1, 2021, likely have been studying for the 2020 test; therefore, USCIS will give these applicants the option to take either the 2020 civics test or the 2008 civics test. There will be a transition period where both tests are being offered. The 2020 test will be phased out on April 19, 2021, for initial test takers. Applicants filing on or after March 1, 2021, will take the 2008 civics test.”
