I am a veteran. How do I apply for veteran’s preference?

When completing an online application you will find a question regarding veteran's preference. Please read the question, select one of the response options and attach a copy of your DD214 or other required documentation. If you do not supply the DD214 or other required documentation with your application, you must submit it no later than 7 calendar days after the application deadline for the position for which you are applying. If you do not supply the required documentation within the defined time frame, veterans preference points will not be awarded.
