Fees for civil service exam application fees will be waived for all state civil service exams, through December 2025.
Gov. Kathy Hochul’s office announced the removal of fees for all state exams as one of several actions included in the FY 2024 Budget.
“As our state continues to grapple with an affordability crisis, civil service exam fees place yet another burden on New Yorkers – particularly the passionate New Yorkers seeking meaningful careers in state service,” Hochul said. “By waiving these fees, my administration is standing by its commitment to modernizing New York’s workforce and lowering barriers to ensure that our civil servants reflect the rich diversity of our state.”
