In 2015, the Arizona legislature passed the American Civics Act (House Bill 2064). This bill will require
students, beginning with the graduating class of 2017, to pass a civics test based on the United States
Immigration and Naturalization civics questions. Students will be required to score 60% or higher in
order to graduate from high school or obtain a high school equivalency certificate. As a courtesy, the
Arizona Department of Education, with help from the Maricopa County Education Service Agency and
Arizona educators, has developed a mostly multiple choice version of the required test.
Students must correctly answer at least 60 of the 100 questions on the civics test . Student may retake the test as many times as necessary to pass.
