Civil Service Testing
University staff positions are required to be filled in accordance with the rules of the State Universities Civil Service System (SUCSS), which include a fairly comprehensive set of testing and interviewing processes. The Civil Service Testing Office will schedule, administer and score examinations as governed by SUCSS. For those classifications that require a credentials assessment, the employment coordinator will complete the assessment and provide the score to the testing office.
