The appropriate application fee is identified in the Job Announcement. The purpose of the application fee is to pay for the processing of your application. It DOES NOT guarantee admission to the examination or appointment to a position.

Note:  In accordance with Public Law 2010 c. 26, Veterans pay a reduced application fee of $15.00 if they have previously established Veteran's Preference with the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMAVA) (as defined by NJSA 11A:5-1 et seq) or their claim is approved by DMAVA at least 8 days prior to the issuance of the eligibility list.  Please note that this reduced fee does not apply to Public Safety titles.

 
 
Separate Fee and Application Required for Each Job Announcement

A separate application is required for each announcement. Each Job Announcement is identified by a Job Announcement symbol that begins with a C, M, or S. Even if the job titles are the same, you must file a separate application for each symbol.

 
 
It is very important that you complete each application carefully, and answer all the questions

You must include an application fee for each application that you submit.

  • Pay by credit card or e-check when you submit an on-line application and receive an immediate confirmation;

                                                  OR

  • Pay by check or money order - DO NOT SEND CASH. Make checks or money orders payable to NJCSC.
  • Write the symbol and your address on the check or money order and send it with the confirmation page you received when you submitted your on-line application.
 
 
Fee Exemption

You are exempt from submitting the application fee if you are receiving:

  • General Assistance - Please submit a copy of your benefits ID card or letter from your local welfare director with your application;
