  • Complete student section
  • The Employer completes and signs employer section
  • Parent statement signed by one parent or guardian
  • Complete social security number
  • There is no minimum GPA required for summer work permits. These permits will all expire on August 22, so there is no risk in issuing one without a grade check this summer.
