Online EAF Request
For the 2022-2023 academic year, the Job Referral Notice (JRN) will be called the Employee Authorization Form (EAF).
The EAF is the only official confirmation of a student’s eligibility to work in the work-study program.
The EAF is authorized and valid only for the specific criteria as stated on the EAF.
To obtain a EAF you must submit the Online EAF Request and provide all of the information requested. Please allow 3-5 business days for a response. Omitted information will delay the EAF authorization process.
Your request will be submitted to the FWS Coordinator to verify the student’s work-study eligibility, award amount, and authorized period. A response will be sent by e-mail to the student, supervisor, and payroll reporter.
The student must begin work within the first 30 days of the authorized period. If the EAF was authorized more than 30 days prior to the first day of work, another Online EAF Request must be submitted.
Please carefully read and follow the instructions for filling out the ePAF. Failure to follow these instructions will result in expiration of the EAF and possible cancellation of the student's work-study award.
