What is CalWORKs?

CalWORKs (California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids) is a state funded Welfare-to-Work program designed to help individuals become self-sufficient.

What is San Joaquin Delta College CalWORKs?

The SJDC CalWORKs program provides student services to eligible students to assist them in their progress toward their county-approved goals and assistance to county Case Managers to ensure compliance and success.  Services include intake, help filing for financial aid, advising, class grids, verification of textbook costs, work study opportunities, needs assessment and referral services, verification of enrollment, a Job Specific Basic Skills lab and Supervised Study Time.

Who is Eligible?

An eligible CalWORKs student must be a TANF recipient who is receiving cash aid for him or herself and any dependent children.  Students in the CalWORKs Program must submit proof of TANF benefits every semester.  Participants in the SJDC CalWORKs Program must be enrolled or be enrolling at the college.  Students must maintain good standing with both the county and the college to continue to be eligible for services.


What is Our Mission?

We are committed to providing CalWORKs students with quality service by assisting them in achieving their educational and life goals.  We accomplish this with dedication, compassion and understanding.

Who are We?


The CalWORKs Program at San Joaquin Delta College is run entirely by employees of the College. While we strive to work closely with the staff members of the Human Services Agency (HSA), we are not funded through the county. Our purpose is to help students, who are receiving cash assistance from HSA, be successful in achieving their educational goals.
