About Your Noncompetitive Eligibility (NCE):
Before you apply for a position where noncompetitive eligibility (NCE) is a qualification, it is important to be sure you have current NCE status. Employers who are only looking for NCE candidates cannot hire someone without this status. In order to ensure that Federal agencies continue to promote this hiring mechanism, we ask you to not apply for NCE positions if you do not have current NCE.
• RPCVs are awarded one year of noncompetitive eligibility that begins the day after their COS date. It can only be extended by the hiring agency (not Peace Corps) if an RPCV is in graduate school full-time, enters the military, or engages in another activity that the hiring agency thinks warrants an extension. NCE can be extended for two years beyond the initial one-year period, for a grand total of three years. Three years after the COS date, your NCE is no longer valid, regardless of your circumstances.
• RPCVs who have completed less than one year of service (including training time) will not receive NCE. However, the Country Director may issue certification to a Volunteer who has satisfactorily served for twelve consecutive months, including training, and whose termination is determined to be for reasons beyond the Volunteer’s control. If you are not sure if you have NCE, please check the last paragraph of your Description of Service.
• Peace Corps staff members who have successfully completed 36 months of continuous service without a break in service of three days earn the status of noncompetitive eligibility (NCE) in applying for other Federal positions, which they retain until three years from the date that they separate from the Peace Corps. Please see 5 CFR 315.607 for the governing authority. Peace Corps staff members with questions about their NCE should contact Human Resource Management.
• For further questions regarding RPCV noncompetitive eligibility (NCE), please review the special federal employment issue of Hotline, May 15, 2011 at www.peacecorps.gov/hotline.
