MDC offers free help to complete Naturalization application

Education Thursday, March 3, 2016


As part of the New Americans Campaign, Miami Dade College (MDC), in partnership with Catholic Legal Services, will host Information Sessions to assist members of the community, staff and students to complete their naturalization applications.

The New Americans Campaign is a national and local partnership that provides free legal assistance and increases awareness about naturalization. 

According to MDC, there are 415,000 lawful permanent residents in South Florida and more than 20,000 MDC students who are eligible and have not yet taken the final step to become U.S. citizens. MDC aims to change that by helping them in completing their naturalization applications.

During the information sessions, Catholic Legal Services’ staff and immigration attorneys will explain how to apply for citizenship, eligibility requirements, how to register and be prepared to complete the process at a Free Citizenship Clinic on Saturday, March 19 at Marlins Park, which MDC is supporting.

More than 400 volunteers, including over 150 attorneys, will be on hand at the Citizenship Clinic in March. For more information and to register to attend the Citizenship Clinic, visit or call 1-888-839-8682.
