1- All first time applicants have to submit their applications in person, but these applications are then mailed to a processing center.

You can apply at locations designated on the State Department website. These include courts, post offices, and libraries.

That's the usual process. These are called Passport Acceptance Locations

2- At some naturalization ceremonies, there'll be a desk set up for people to submit passport applications. You'll need all the documents you'd normally need while applying at the post office. They'll take your paperwork and send it off, just like the usual process. Many ceremonies do not have such a desk.

Both 1 and 2 involve your paperwork being sent somewhere else.

3- If you are in a hurry to travel and can prove it (within two weeks of travel), you can apply at the closest Passport Agency. They will make sure you get your passport before your flight. Using this method usually means that your application will be processed at the Agency at which you applied, but in some cases, they send it somewhere else. You may get your passport by mail or you may be asked to come back to pick it up.
