Glossary

USCIS.gov now has an online dictionary (glossary). You can use this dictionary to quickly look up a definition or explanation for a topic. Get started by clicking on the letter your word begins with.

The dictionary is different from our A-Z Index. You can still use the index to locate links to relevant content.

If you would like to suggest other words to be added to our dictionary, please send an email to USCIS Webmaster.
