The City of St. Cloud operates under a point preference system which awards points to qualified veterans to supplement their application. Ten (10) points are granted to non-disabled veterans on open competitive examinations; fifteen (15) points are added if the veteran has a service connected compensable disability as certified by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (USDVA).
To qualify for preference for a competitive exam, you must have earned a passing score and been separated under honorable conditions from any branch of the armed forces of the United States after having served on active duty for 181 consecutive days, or by reason of disability incurred while serving on active duty, or after having served the full period called or ordered for federal active duty and be a United States citizen or resident alien.
Veteran’s preference may be used by the surviving spouse of a deceased veteran, who died on active duty or as a result of active duty, and by the spouse of a disabled veteran who is unable to qualify because of the disability.
To qualify for preference on a promotional exam, a veteran must have earned a passing exam score and received a USDVA active duty service connected disability rating of 50% or more. For a promotional exam, a qualified disabled veteran is entitled to be granted 5 points. Disabled veterans eligible for such preference may use the 5 points preference only for the first promotion after securing City employment.
Claims must be made on the form below and submitted with your application by the application deadline of the position for which you are applying. If the DD214 is submitted to our office separate from this sheet, please attach a note with it indicating the position for which you are applying and your present address.
DD214 or DD215 must be submitted to receive points.
(DD 214 or DD215, photocopy of marriage certificate, spouse’s death certificate and proof veteran died on or as a result of active duty must be submitted to receive points. You are ineligible to receive points if you have remarried or were divorced from the veteran.)
