What are veteran’s credits, and how do I apply?
Certain veterans of the armed forces may be eligible to have extra points added to their passing examination score. If the veteran’s credits are approved, this may cause the eligible veteran to receive a higher score and/or rank on the Eligible List making appointment more likely. Interested veterans must apply for veteran’s credits. To do so, the veteran should complete the Application for Veterans Credits section of the examination application form and provide a copy of his/her Military Service Record (DD-214 form) when he/she applies for the examination. Veteran’s credits may only be used for one public employment appointment.
