  2. Provide a copy of the exam mark/grade to verify that a passing mark/grade is received. Only exams receiving a passing mark/grade will be reimbursed.
  3. Provide proof of payment through a copy of the cancelled check or copy of the receipt from New York State. Only Promotional Exams taken after 2010 will be considered for reimbursement.
