Pennsylvania State Police Cadet Oral Examinations were administered from March 7, 2014 through March 11, 2014, and have now concluded.  Oral Examinations were administered to qualified candidates who applied online from April 3, 2013 through December 15, 2013 and achieved a passing score on the Written Test administered from January 6, 2014, to January 25, 2014.  Final results will be emailed no later than April 1, 2014 to candidates who took the Oral Examination.

Candidates who took the Oral Examination in March 2014 and do not receive email notification by April 1, 2014 are advised to email with a message including full name and last four digits of Social Security number.  Oral Examination results are not available online.  Candidates are advised to check “junk” or “spam” files prior to emailing


The Oral Examination score will be combined with that of the Written Examination and Veterans’ Preference Points or Child of a Fallen Officer Preference Points (if applicable) to create a rank on an eligibility list.  The PSP will contact candidates for further processing in rank order, according to our requirements.   Since our requirements vary from year to year it is difficult to predict how many candidates will be contacted for further processing during a particular year, or when that processing will occur.

The eligibility list remains in effect until it is superseded by a new list.  Applicants are required to submit a new application for each testing cycle.  The next Written Examination has not been scheduled yet so PSP is currently unable to provide details regarding the dates, times and locations that the Written Examination will be offered.   Applicants wishing to participate in future examinations are advised to complete a new application on our website at  Applicants who have not applied since December 16, 2013, must first register as a “New Applicant” since PSP launched a new online process in December of 2013.

Candidates, whose contact information has changed since initial application, are encouraged to update contact information to include mailing address, email address, and telephone number, via email to  If contact information is not up to date candidates may not receive important future testing information or updates. 

Questions regarding the application process may be directed by email to  Questions regarding the testing process which are not answered on the PSP website may be directed by email to
