    Education: Successful completion of one full year of progressively higher level graduate education leading to a master's degree or equivalent graduate degree in a field that is closely related to the duties of this position. One year of full-time graduate education is considered to be the number of credit hours that the school attended has determined to represent 1 year of full- time study. If that information cannot be determined from the school, 18 semester hours should be considered as equivalent to 1 year of full-time study. You must submit a copy of your transcripts with your application.


    Combination of Experience and Education: You may qualify for this position if you have a percentage of the specialized experience described above and a percentage of the graduate education described above such that when the two percentages are added together, they total at least 100 percent. You must submit a copy of your transcripts with your application.


    Superior Academic Achievement (SAA): SAA at the baccalaureate level is fully qualifying for the GS-7. Applicants who wish to apply under this provision must submit proof from their educational institution that they meet one of the criteria listed below.

    4. Membership in a national honor society (other than freshman honor societies) recognized by the Association of College Honor Societies.

    This is a developmental position leading to a GS-13, performing assignments intended to broaden skills and provide practical experience leading to progressively more complex assignments performed under progressively less supervision. You will ultimately acquire the background necessary to perform at the full performance level of GS-13. Promotion is at the discretion of the supervisor and is contingent upon satisfactory performance, availability of higher level work, and availability of funds.

    Promotion Potential: The selectee may be promoted to the full performance level without further competition when all regulatory, qualification, and performance requirements are met.  Selection at a lower grade level does not guarantee promotion to the full performance level.
