Attention Albany County Residents!

Albany County residents may be allowed to submit up to two applications per calendar year without having to pay the filing fee for certain exams. The same remains true for employees of Albany County government (with a maximum of two per calendar year). Please refer to the filing fee section of each individual exam announcement as the resident/employee waiver policy does not apply to all exams.
