Current & Upcoming Exams

DCAS releases an Annual Civil Service Exam Application Schedule that lists all exams open for filing during the fiscal year (July through June). The exams schedule is available in Alpha Order and Application Period Order. The exam schedule is tentative for the Fiscal Year as some exams may be cancelled or postponed. The schedule is updated on a monthly basis to reflect any changes, as applicable.

Exams for which applications are currently being accepted may be found in the Monthly Exam Applications Schedule or within the tables below, including those exams offered at our Computer-based Testing & Applications Centers (CTACs).
