What is CalWORKs work-study?

CalWORKs Work-Study Program provides CalWORKs students with on and off campus work opportunities in order to develop and/or strengthen workplace skills while completing their educational goals. Students learn how to enter and re-enter the workforce with the confidence that is needed to achieve career satisfaction and economic self-sufficiency. Work-Study is a time-limited program and allows students to earn money that will not be deducted from their cash aid grant (income-exempt). 

Work-Study Requirements

  2. Submit a current Verification of Benefits- students must be receiving cash aid for themselves, not only child/ren (click HERE for steps on how to access your VOB​)

  4. Be enrolled in at least 6 units in the Spring & Fall semesters
