Civil Service Commission | Step Six: Application Review

Governor Phil Murphy • Lt.Governor Sheila Oliver

When your application arrives at the Civil Service Commission (CSC), it is reviewed to determine if you meet the basic requirements. If you do not meet all the requirements posted in the Job Announcement you will receive a notification of ineligibility in approximately 12 to 14 weeks from the closing date.

Notification of Ineligibility

An application may be rejected because the applicant:

  • Did not submit their application to the CSC by the announcement filing deadline;
  • Does not meet the residency requirements;
  • Does not meet the education and/or experience requirements included in the Job Announcement;
  • Did not submit the supporting documentation, such as copies of college transcripts or copies of licenses or certifications;
  • Submitted a fee payment that is invalid.
  • Does not have proper licenses/certifications.
