USC launches services aimed at U.S. citizenship

USC has launched an initiative to help lawful permanent residents earn their US citizenship.

The Immigration Clinic at the Gould School of Law offers free, on-campus Citizenship Orientation workshops. These workshops provide information on the benefits of citizenship and eligibility, and answer questions. Following the workshop, individuals may choose one of three pathways to completing their naturalization application: free Citizenship Clinics to complete and file the naturalization application, with the help of legal experts at the Gould Immigration Clinic; free Individual Legal Assistance provided by the Gould Immigration Clinic for complex cases; or a free on-campus Naturalization Exam Preparation course, organized through the Bovard College, for employees who need to learn U.S. Civics and History and practice their English (for the naturalization interview and exam, before completing and submitting their application).

In addition, the Credit Union is providing no-fee, low-interest loans to make the cost of the naturalization application more accessible.

To find out which pathway to citizenship is right for you and your family, the USC Gould Immigration Clinic invites you to a Citizenship Orientation session. For a full calendar of events, visit the Gould site.

For more information, contact the USC Gould Immigration Clinic at or (213) 821-9627. (If you’re looking for DACA help, learn more about services available at USC through Gould School of Law, and the Office of Religious Life.)
