I’ve applied for other examination(s) scheduled on the same date with other civil service agencies. What do I need to do?

If you have applied for any other civil service examination(s) scheduled on the same date for other jurisdictions (excluding New York City), complete the Cross-Filer Form (PDF) and submit it with your application. You must make arrangements to take all exams at one site and notify all other agencies involved no later than 2 weeks before the test date.

If you have applied for both State and local agency exams, you must make arrangements to take all exams at the NYS exam site by completing the Cross-Filer Form and submitting it with your application.
