Citizenship Program

Preparing for the citizenship interview and passing the citizenship test is the goal of ECC's Citizenship Program. We make sure students know U.S. history and government, the Constitution, civics questions, dictated written questions, and questions in the N-400.

U.S. Citizen

A citizen of the U.S. is a native-born, foreign-born, or naturalized person who owes allegiance to the U.S. and who is entitled to its protection. As a U.S. citizen, you have rights and privileges which include the right to vote in all of the elections, run for public office, travel outside the U.S., petition for green cards for your children, parents and close relatives, and hold federal government jobs. U.S. citizens cannot be deported or lose their citizenship even if they commit a crime or live elsewhere in the world.



Naturalization is the way immigrants become U.S. citizens. Please go to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Website.
