USCIS updated guidance in the USCIS Policy Manual regarding the educational requirements for naturalization. The update, effective 3/1/21, provides that USCIS will revert to administering the 2008 civics test to applicants who filed for naturalization before 12/1/20, or who will file on or after 3/1/21. There will be a brief period during which USCIS may offer both the 2020 civics test and the 2008 civics test to accommodate certain naturalization applicants who filed on or after 12/1/20, and before 3/1/21, and are scheduled for an interview before 4/19/21. Comments are due March 22, 2021.
