The CSC Certificate of Eligibility is one of the documentary requirements if you want to land a position in the government. This certificate is given to all passers of the Civil Service Examinations (Professional and Sub-Professional) either through Computerized Examination (CSC-COMEX) or Paper and Pencil Test (CSE-PPT). The two types of certificate of eligibility are the temporary CoE and regular CoE. The temporary CoE is given free of charge to all Civil Service passers and printed on regular paper with the Commission’s letterhead. It should be noted that this temporary certificate is valid for only two (2) years from the date of its issuance and cannot be authenticated. The regular CoE on the other hand, costs one hundred Pesos (₱ 100.00), and printed on SECPA or security paper, and can be authenticated. Moreover, the regular Civil Service certificate has no expiration and it is usually the one preferred by government agencies.

How to Claim the Certificate of Eligibility

You cannot immediately claim the certificate right after you’ve passed the Civil Service examination. Releasing of Civil Service certificates is usually announced more or less thirty (30) days after the test results have been posted. You can then only claim it once the Commission announces its availability. However, there is no deadline when claiming your CSC Certificate of Eligibility. Just make sure you are early at the branch where you will claim it.

Before getting your Civil Service eligibility certificate, contact the nearest CSC office first to verify the availability of the certificate before going to any CSC Regional or Field Office. Visit the Commission’s website/directory to know their contact numbers and email address. Please be reminded that you must personally claim the certificate because representatives are not allowed to claim it on your behalf. The certification should be requested at the CSC Regional Office with jurisdiction over the examinee’s testing center. Thus, passers from NCR should claim the certification at CSC NCR located at No. 25 Kaliraya Street, Brgy. Doña Josefa, Quezon City; while those who took the test in Morong, Rizal should proceed to CSC Regional Office 4 located at 139 Panay Avenue, Quezon City.
