I'm also waiting and very confused. I've been referred to the scheduling unit since September. I did notice something strange. My credit report has an inquiry made by Customs in mid June. Exactly one year after they did it last year (while I was undergoing the background investigation). SO I guess they renew everything every year? I guess they're still considering me. But all this mystery is very disappointing. And to think that last January I was about to turn down a job offer with VA because I thought I would be called for the next academy!

Everything we did has varying expiration dates, some of the stuff is a year while others like the video based test we had to do lasts a couple of years so that's why we had to do stuff like renew our medical stuff.

And tell me about it man. I got out of the Military thinking I would have been gone this year to an Academy and here I am waiting for it until next year. Would have stayed in longer had I known. Thankfully, I stayed in the Reserves and found a lab job that pays good enough while I wait. It sucks. We will see next year when we get to play this all over again.

It was for a job offer, but they needed one form from me and now I'm just waiting for them to offer me it.

I have returned to the "Referred to Selection" status again and I had to do another urine analysis again today so it looks like I am back to being good for the next round of classes. Spring of next year can't get here soon enough.

Hi envihon, how long did it take you to go back to the referred status again since you sent the medical self certification form?

I came out of status back in May and didn't return to Referred to Selection until July 18th so the better part of two months.

Hi everyone!! I have been following up with this forum for the past year, and it has really helped to not stress too much about the time this process is taking. I applied in August 2016 for the Florida region and I was just referred to schedule last month. Although it's been really stressful, I really appreciate all the info on training dates and BI time-frame. It has allowed me to still have a life, while waiting to get this job. I just wish everyone the best of luck in being called for the next training session. Hope to see you all there!

I am glad we can be of service. It definitely has helped with the stress. Hoping that I make it coming up as well since I didn't make through this round of classes. Hoping to see some of the people on here at class even if we don't go to the same place.

This is a nationwide expansion so it should affect all of us.

All we have to do is wait now. Good luck to everyone still waiting and hope these next couple of months go faster.


Hi guys, I am right now in FLETC and I used to refer to this forum before I was called and I know how you feel. Just be patient and try to think in other stuff while you wait. Yes, it is hard but...
Just one little correction. There are 24 students per class. Sometimes before to get to Frederick there are persons who leave, sometimes there are people that don't pass the exams so you miss some thorough the way but as far as I know at the time of scheduling a class only 24 make it.
Good luck to all of you for 2018.

Only 24 definitely means that it is slow going. The only thing I wish is that I would have gone longer in the military before leaving. I found a job to hold in the mean time it's not too bad, just that I miss serving. Hopefully this will go away once I get in. Hoping that the new year brings something awesome.

Thanks for the information!

Have you tried emailing them? It could take a bit for them to respond but they usual do eventually.

Here is the link to the various hiring bodies for CBP: https://www.cbp.gov/careers/hc-contact-table

Depending on where you are at, you will have to contact a different entity. If you were placed in Hiring Selection already, the last email at the end would be the one to contact because they will be the ones with your file right now.

Did somebody already try to log in in the new system .... they disable CAss and create another website to track the job application .... I was referred to the scheduling unit back in June 2017 and in the new website is showing as I still missing a fitness test and a polygraph .... completetion status of 56% .... this is so discouraging because I was already referred and waiting for the final call but now I'm missing steps .....

I signed up for the new system back when they dropped the app 6 months ago. I display the same thing and I asked about it in an email. You are not missing any steps, those steps are generalized and we get lumped in with the Officers. There is no Fitness test for the Ag Specialists and the polygraph isn't required for them like it is the Officers although they can do one if they think it is necessary. You are still referred to selection so there isn't anything to worry about.

I also received the automated email and registered with the new system. I'm only 44% completed, but like the other poster said, we are not required to do the fitness test nor the polygraph. I was also in "referred to scheduling" status before the transition. I wouldn't sweat about it. With the next few months filled with holidays, hopefully spring will arrive soon enough before we know it with good news for everyone.
