N648… What is it?
An N648 is a USCIS form which provides an exemption for applicants with disabilities from taking the English and civics requirements. The N648 can be called many things. We refer to it as a Disability Exception. The eligibility requirements for naturalization include two things:
- demonstrating an understanding of the English language (the “English” requirement)
- knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals of the history, and of the principles and form of government, of the United States (the “civics “requirement).
