CalWORKs Program Services

The Cosumnes River College CalWORKs Program offers the following services to enrolled CalWORKs students. 


Academic/Personal Counseling

Our CalWORKs Counselors have an in-depth understanding of CalWORKs County policies, time limits and educational requirements.

A CalWORKs Counselor will create a Student Education Plan with you, which the county caseworker requires in order to approve school as a welfare-to-work-activity.


CalWORKs Work Study Program: On and Off Campus Employment Program

In the CalWORKs Work Study program, a CalWORKs Employment Specialist will assist the student in securing on or off campus employment, providing opportunities to develop marketable job skills related to their current education and training goals. 

To learn more about eligibility requirements and how to apply for the Work Study program, please contact the Student Support Center.
