HUGE bummer and I've been a miserable grump the entire last couple of weeks. But things happen for a reason, I believe.


Sorry to hear about the minor setback. Rest up, recover and you'll be at the Academy in no time.

Passed my second PFT this week. Hoping I get a call for the February class as my medical and background are done!

Has anyone who has passed the PFT heard on being slotted for the next class?

Congrats! Passed mine on the 9th and was told that the next class start date is Feb 13th! My AC said I'll more than likely get offered that class. I'm pending final offer right now.

Congrats on all who are getting ready for the Q in February! Does anyone know when they normally start psych? and how long does it take?
Thank you.

Thank you.


Psych can range in time for each individual but in my case, it took about 1.5 months to get through. I heard from psych roughly 3 months into my background.

It took about a month and a half or so for me due to requested documents from the VA etc. Once I got an email from psych, I knew that I had cleared the medical portion.

Depends on the condition(s). After I submitted my rating packet, the FBI made me follow up with doctors for any listed condition and and get an evaluation done stating it wouldn't prevent me from doing any portion of the job. So the speed at which you get that done will dictate how long it takes to get cleared. As far as the time it took after I submitted all the follow on documentation, it was probably the fastest part of the whole process, took only a couple days for them to tell me I was cleared.

Tried responding to your message. Wont go through, inbox may be full? But glad to hear you passed. I have mine scheduled before the EOY. Hope to get the green check soon!

Hey brother. Tried sending you a PM, but its not working. I think there might be something wrong with the website today. Anyway...

Bummer to hear about your medical issues... Stay positive I have a question for ya regarding this.

I have my poly in a few days. So im still a good ways out. But I might be undergoing a surgery as well in the next few months, which would require about 3-6 month recovery time. So id say anywhere from 6-9 months until all said and done. maybe longer...

With that being said.. What was it like working this process while having to have surgery. Especially right before you were about to go. Do you have to redo medical? If you get delayed too long will you have to retake the poly / background?

Im worried that if I pass the poly, and be forced to wait 6 months for recovery, I'll have to do it again. Im hoping that I pass, have the surgery, recover while in background / psych, push my PFT out to when im ready, and all goes well. Just worried im going to take the poly and have to restart back at that point if recovery takes too long.

I know this is a question for my AC, just thought id ask you since it seems like you just navigated this process.

Thanks brother, good luck to you and speedy recovery! Feel free to PM me. Mine just wasn't working for some reason.

Currently in process but before medical clearance. Would a prior spinal fusion for scoliosis disqualify me? Thanks

I’ve been in BI for over a year. Be patient. Reach out occasionally to your AC to see if they need anything.

Quick question to anyone and everyone who passed their background investigation - how long after a date change/green check mark next to background investigation on the portal did you get the call?

I just saw that my application was updated last week and there’s a green check. Before reaching out to my FO, I figured I’ll give them some time to contact me but wanted to gauge others’ experiences

No idea, but I think you and I passed the poly around the same time if I remember correctly (mid-September), so congrats on passing the BI so quickly. Did you ever have a date change in the “my application” section before seeing the green check mark for the BI?


I changed field offices from Baltimore to Newark when I moved halfway in the process so not sure how (if) that affects anything. Thanks! But until I receive "the call" or any type of confirmation I'm not assuming I passed or anything lol. To be honest, I check the portal MAYBE once a month. I've tried not to obsess over it and let things fall as they go. So honestly I'm not sure. The green check mark is definitely new.

I got a date change and green check mark next to background, but I never officially got a call. I have spoken to my AC since to coordinate a class date. At that time I asked her if I was cleared for hire and she told me I was. Just wanted to let you know because apparently sometimes there isn't always a "call", and your field office will just reach out to you to coordinate a class date.
