For those students getting working papers for the FIRST TIME there will be (2) links you need to access.


  1. First you must fill out the application (Click on the AT-17 Application for Employment Certificate link below). This will lead you to the working permit application where you can type in all info on the TOP PORTION ONLY.

The completed application (AT-17), Original Birth Certificate or Passport or STATE ID, Original Social Security Card and a Doctor's note that states you are physically fit for "work". (Sports Medicals, blood work are NOT accepted as proof).
