Last Date To Apply

This is to advise you of a change that the Department of Civil Service will be implementing with respect to the application filing period for State civil service examinations beginning in Fall 2012. The application filing period will be 30 days for all promotion, transition, and open-competitive examinations.

This change to the application filing period, along with on-line posting of examination announcements and automatic e-mail notification of newly issued examination announcements, allows the Department to maintain a timely, high quality application review and to improve the efficiency of its test production schedule, while ensuring candidates have a sufficient and reasonable time in which to file an application for an examination.

Applications must be submitted on-line or postmarked no later than the date indicated in the Last Date to Apply column.


You may obtain printed copies of our current announcements and applications (NYS-APP) from NYS Civil Service Outreach & Information Centers.

Special test arrangements will be made for Saturday religious observers and persons with a disability. Our announcements are subject to amendment or cancellation without notice.

Do not copy them or post them to any other site, but link to the announcement or to this page instead.
