What is an eligibility list?
An eligibility list is a list of candidates who meet a position’s minimum requirements and have successfully completed a civil service examination (70% or higher).

Successful candidates are ranked on the eligibility list in order of their final score in the examination.

For all positions, 5 extra credit points will be given to those people who meet veteran status requirements and provide proof thereof; typically by means of a DD-214 form.

Police officer and firefighter candidates also receive 1 extra credit point for each 30 college credit hours in excess of the minimum requirement of 60 credit hours.

Police Officer candidates receive 5 extra points if they are either enrolled in, or have completed the police academy.
