Permits must be renewed each semester. Permits are valid ONLY for the approved semester. Work permits can be revoked at any time.

Business/Parental Signatures & Social Security Number are REQUIRED.

Allow 1-2 business days for processing & administrative approvals.

A separate permit is required for each business employing the student (i.e., Student can have 2 separate jobs @2 different businesses.)
