I created an account on DocCollect and now I cannot sign in. What should I do?

When creating an account on https://doccollect.rochesterworks.org, you will receive a message via email. If you do not see a confirmation email in your inbox, be sure to check your spam folder. Once your account is approved, you will use your username to sign in not your email address. Account approval may take up to 48 hours, not including weekends. Do not set up multiple accounts.

 If you are still in need of assistance, call the SOOP hotline at 585-428-6366 or email us at SOOP@cityofrochester.gov

What should I do if I do not have a work permit?

If the applicant does not have a work permit, they must upload all other required documents. The SYEP and SOOP team will place the file on hold until the work permit is received.  Once the applicant submits the work permit, their file will be reviewed based on where we are in the approval process. For all other work permit related questions, please contact your school directly.

 Although the office is currently closed, we are monitoring voicemail and email daily.

Call 585-428-6366 or email SOOP@cityofrochester.gov and a SOOP team member will respond within 24 hours Monday-Friday.
