National Pass Rate is 90%
The pass rate above represents the cumulative pass rate of applicants who took both the English and civics components of the test since it was fully implemented on October 1, 2009.
Background on the Data
The overall national pass rate is determined based solely on an applicant’s first test within the current naturalization application.
The data reflected above were taken from internal case management systems used to track naturalization applications and have been gathered to provide a general snapshot of how applicants are performing on the naturalization test. Please note that test results for each applicant are manually entered into the case management system and some errors may occur during manual entry. Although every effort has been undertaken to eliminate any errors made during manual data entry, errors may exist that would impact the publicized national pass rate.
Data on previous pass rates can be accessed below by date.
