The purpose of this course is to prepare students for success in the Citizenship Interview and Examination as administered by the U.S. Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services. Citizenship classes are offered at multiple locations throughout Miami-Dade County. Contact (305) 558-8000 for a location near you.

Citizenship Florida is a collaboration between Miami-Dade County Public Schools and Catholic Charities Legal Services (CCLS) of Miami to assist eligible Permanent Legal Residents {LPRs} (Green Card) to apply for citizenship.

The program provides eligible LPRs with access to a computer lab and assists in submitting an electronic citizenship application (N400) on line at selected adult education centers free of charge.

Applicants must complete an eligibility application in order to be screened before they are allowed to go on line to complete the electronic (N400) citizenship application. All completed applications are reviewed free of charge by an immigration attorney from CCLS to ensure the information and required documents are accurate before submitting to US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Applicants must pay the application fee once they are approved by USCIS.

The program does not pay for the application. We provide free services to assist you with the application through a program called Citizenship Works.
