Thank you for the blog entry.

As indicated in the proposed Pathways Programs regulations, to be eligible for the Recent Graduates Program, applicants must apply within two years of degree or certificate completion (except for Veterans precluded from doing so due to their military service obligation, who will have up to six years after degree completion). At this time, there is no provision to account for individuals who have received their degree or certificate over two years prior to the implementation date of the Pathways Programs. Please note: the Pathways Programs regulations have not been finalized, and are subject to change until published.


While some Recent Graduates could be affected by the two-year application time frame, they are still able to apply to entry-level positions via the competitive process or other hiring authorities as applicable, including those for Veterans and individuals with disabilities.
