Citizenship Exam Practice

Are you working toward U.S. Citizenship? Make an appointment for a practice interview session with an MCLS staff member to go through all three sections of the test: reading, writing and the civics questions. This practice session will give you a good idea of what will happen during the interview and how well prepared you are. These appointments will take place via GoToMeeting until further notice. Go to the Virtual Branch page for more information on GoToMeeting.
