This opportunity is being announced with anticipated eligibility.  Applicants who are currently and actively enrolled in a qualifying degree program may apply, however, will only be considered for appointment if they have graduated by the time the appointment is being offered.  When the civil service examination comes up, those who remain actively enrolled in college will be admitted to the examination and those with a passing score will be marked as restricted if they have not obtained their degree by the time the list is established.  Once these candidates complete the requirements to be fully eligible, they may be considered for permanent appointment once they have demonstrated possession of a qualifying degree.  It is the candidate's responsibility to let Human Resources know when they are eligible by providing a transcript indicating that their degree has been conferred.
