Starting next month, Barton Community College will offer citizenship classes.
Classes will run from 10 a.m. to noon, and a night class session from 7-9 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays, Nov. 6 through Jan. 31 at the Center for Adult Education, 1025 Main St., Great Bend.
The classes will provide all the necessary information and practice for passing the citizenship test and interview. There is no cost for the class, but there is a $15 textbook fee.
In addition to the coursework, prospective citizens must file the N-400 form with the United Citizenship and Immigration Services Department, and the class includes assistance with the form. The entire process takes approximately six months.
Instructor Doris Reile-Kneller said the course is designed to assist permanent residents of any nationality who want to obtain their U.S. citizenship through naturalization or are just interested in learning about the United States. She said over 200 local citizens have received their naturalization certificate through these classes over the past 12 years.
