The College and Career Readiness program at Surry Community College is offering a course to prepare students for the process of applying for U.S. citizenship.

The course is available on the Dobson campus, Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Monday through Wednesday 5 to 8 p.m. The schedule for the Yadkin Center in Yadkinville is Tuesday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Tuesday and Thursday 4:30 to 8 p.m.

Enrolled students will receive instruction to improve literary and mathematical skills, which will assist them in obtaining their High School Equivalency diploma through the GED or HiSET. The class also prepares participants for desired employment opportunities or post-secondary education, and equips those interested in applying for U.S. citizenship with the resources and guidance required to pass the U.S. Citizenship Test.

Documentation of enrollment to meet Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) requirements is provided upon completion of a minimum of 70 hours of active student participation. Call Bentley Cornett to register at (336) 386-3660 or
