SCC CalWORKs Student Area Outcomes

SCC CalWORKs (CW) Program will:

  • Provide term-to-term SCC CW Grants to our CW students: provide stipend CW Grant based on CW State Grant availability to offset basic expenses of living (housing, transportation, utility bills, food etc.) and also to cover school supplies. Our target this year is to continue our SCC CW Grant to help SCC CW student success in school.
  • Support CalWORKs students in successfully completing their matriculation component: Orientation, CW Counselor mandate & Student Educational Plan at higher rates than SCC students not in CalWORKs, Priority Registration, and CWS Program. Students will work with CW Counselors to identify the appropriate academic accommodations necessary to address their individual needs. CW Students will feel supported and encouraged by the SCC CW Program on their educational journey at SCC.
  • Support CW students in term-to-term persistence through our services and support in a welcoming and positive environment making it comfortable for students to request assistance. CW Students will demonstrate basic knowledge of SCC CW Program principles, rules, and regulations, and meet deadlines
