All Civil Service exams, except for the Police Officer/Telecommunicator series, are being converted to Credential Assessments by December 1st, 2022.
Credentials Assessment is a rating by the Human Resources department of an applicant's/employee's education, experience, and special credentials/qualifications (licenses, etc.). The Human Resource department uses the State Universities Civil Service Systems guidelines to give specific points to each section of the Credentials Assessment. To establish an appropriate score for each exam, a review of an employment application, official college transcript, copies of license/certification and any other relevant material may be required. The final score of the Credentials Assessment accounts for 100% of the entire exam. It is important to be as detailed as possible when filling out an employment application. Please remember to clearly list out assigned job duties under the work experience portion to receive the maximum allowable points.
