How long is an Eligibility List in effect?

An Eligibility list is active for one year. After one year is up the list will expire. A list may close before the one year period is up if; there are no more candidates on the list or the position is filled and the list is closed. In the case of continuous positions, new candidates will be merged onto the current list and will expire after one year from that date. Adding more candidates to an existing list will not change the expiration date for those currently on the list, they will still expire after one year.
