Students are required to complete a clearance form if they are transferring jobs from one department to another on campus, transferring jobs from BYUH to PCC and vice versa, or BYUH and PCC co-employment. Clearance forms can be obtained at the Student Employment window located in the Lorenzo Snow Administration Building or the employment section of Human Resources Forms.
