Stand Alone Application Support Centers Change in Schedule

WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Application Support Center (ASC) stand-alone sites will move to a Monday through Friday schedule beginning Nov. 2, 2009.  Stand-alone ASCs are those which are not co-located with other federal offices and which previously operated Tuesday through Saturday.  All ASCs, both stand-alone and co-located sites, will continue to be open from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

All stand-alone ASCs will be closed on Saturday, Oct. 31, 2009 and will reopen on Monday, November 2 under the new Monday to Friday schedule. The last Saturday that stand-alone ASCs will be open for business is Saturday, Oct. 24, 2009.

Application Support Centers capture biometrics – fingerprints, photographs and signatures – in order to verify the identity of and conduct background checks on immigration benefit applicants.
