STEP THREE: INITIAL ELIGIBILITY REGISTER
The Initial Eligibility Register of candidates will be established based on the written test score. A grade of Sixty-five percent (65%) or better is required to be placed on the Initial Eligibility Register, in rank order of excellence. Each applicant candidate achieving the minimum score or better will be emailed or mailed a copy of the initial eligibility register advising the candidate he/she qualified. Veterans, sworn Police Officers, and applicants with Associates or B.S. degrees in Law Enforcement or Criminal Justice then may apply for preference points, within ten (10) days of the posting date of the Initial Eligibility Register.

STEP FIVE: PRIMARY ELIGIBILITY REGISTER
A final Primary Register of Candidates will be created from the Initial Eligibility Register after combining the written (60%) and oral test (40%) scores and adding qualifying preference points. The Primary Register will be replenished from the remaining Candidates on the Initial Eligibility Register as the Primary Register is exhausted. Both will remain in force for a period of three (3) years from the effective date as is established by the Norridge Board of Fire & Police Commissioners. All appointments to the police department will be made from the Primary Register in rank order of excellence, until the Primary Register is depleted or both lists expire.
