Student Work Permits

Work Permits may be obtained electronically or in-person:

Student work permit applications are available at the Millcreek Education Center. Please be sure to provide the student's proof of age with the application. 

  • Where: 3740 W. 26th Street, Erie, PA 16506
  • When:
    • Monday - Thursday 7:30am - 3:30pm
    • Friday 7:30am - 3:00pm
  • The work permit application can also be filled out electronically and e-mailed to with a picture of acceptable proof of age (passport, birth certificate, etc.)
  • An e-mail will be sent back to confirm receipt of all documents or to let the parent know what is still needed.

Please allow up to 2 weeks for this process. Only one blue work permit is to be issued – please keep it in a safe place and do not give to the employer. 

If you have questions, please call Denise Tarasovitch at (814)-835-5300 and press 0 for the front desk.

Under the new Child Labor Law, there will only be one work permit rather than three. The new work permit will apply to all minors age 14 through 17 and can be used for more than one employer.
