Naturalization

The United States District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma has retained jurisdiction to conduct Naturalization Ceremonies. A United States district judge, magistrate judge, or bankruptcy judge presides over the ceremony, administers the oath of allegiance to the applicants, and gives a naturalization certificate to each new citizen.

Friends and family of the applicants are welcome to attend. Those attending a ceremony at the courthouse must show a photo ID to enter the courthouse and will be subject to a security screening.  Photography is generally prohibited in the federal courthouse; however, the Court has granted permission for photos during and after the ceremony. Public parking is not available at the courthouse; however, several parking garages and lots are located nearby.

Impact of Weather Conditions on Scheduled Naturalization Ceremonies - During the winter season particularly, it is possible that weather conditions may require the delay or cancellation of a scheduled Naturalization Ceremony. In the event of a delay or cancellation, Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) will notify naturalization candidates. The District Court also will provide a notice of the delay or cancellation on the court's website.
