Suncoast Citizenship Project

US Citizenship CeremonyOur UMCM Suncoast Citizenship Program provides all of the preparation you need to be successful throughout the naturalization process.  UMCM Suncoast offers free education and assistance on the path to naturalization through a grant from USCIS.

UMCM Suncoast’s 20+ years of ESOL experience places us in the unique position to be the only comprehensive program including English Literacy to help you prepare for the naturalization interview.

Class Information:

Our classes focus on:

  • Civics and US History
  • English for Citizenship
  • Interview Practice and Techniques
  • Citizenship Preparation

Our program provides USCIS grant-funded, teacher-led classes for students needing intensive English practice, as well as classes for students who have more experience with the English language and are looking for some extra practice and review in civics, history, and interview prep in English.  We welcome and do our best to accommodate all those hoping to obtain citizenship. 

 *All our classes are English immersion so that you can have the most exposure to the language you will need to use for the naturalization interview. 


Please call or text us for details about registration dates and times.  To register for class, you must take a short English placement test and bring your greencard.


Our classes are two hours long, and meet two times a week.  Days and times vary from location to location.  We do our best to hold classes outside of work hours.  Our sessions are 10 weeks long but students are welcome and encouraged to attend class longer.  We run classes year round with holidays.
