    • Report student earnings information electronically.
    • View disbursement information online.

    Current Employers

    If your organization is already approved to participate in the SWSP, check with the Authoritative Source at your organization to confirm which resources are available for use. For questions regarding access or who the Authoritative Source is for your organization, contact PHEAA staff at

    New Employers

    After PHEAA has received and approved your application for participation, the Remote Access Agreement (RAA) and Request for Authoritative Source Status (Attachment A) will be provided. Complete both documents in ink and mail both forms to:

    PA State Grant and Special Programs
    PA State Work-Study Program
    P.O. Box 8157
    Harrisburg, PA 17105-8157

    If you need an official copy of the executed RAA for your records, complete two agreement forms and return both to PHEAA. Once executed, PHEAA will mail one copy back to your organization and your organization will be able to set up and manage user access to the PHEAA systems.
