Applicant Notification

After you file your examination application, you will be notified if it has been approved or disapproved.

Approved Applications: If your application is approved and the examination consists of a written test, you will receive an admission notice telling you where and when to report for the test. Read the notice carefully. You are required to bring this notice with you to the test center.

An admission notice is mailed to a candidate approximately ten days before a written test. If you do not receive your admission notice for an examination(s) three days before the date of the written test, please email AdmissionNotices@cs.ny.gov with your first and last name, address, and the last four digits of your SSN in the body of your email. You will receive a response with the information required to attend.

If you have any other needs related to taking an examination, please leave a message with the Examination Arrangements Unit at (518) 474-6470. Please provide your first and last name, the last four digits of your social security number, and a phone number where you can be reached during normal business hours.

Disapproved Applications: If your application is not approved, you will be notified by mail. The reason for disapproval will be provided.
