CalWORKs Continuing Student Orientation

As a CalWORKs student I understand that there are program requirements and to be eligible for the program I must follow and meet the guidelines below.

1. Every semester/term (summer/fall/spring) that I attend Palomar College, I will set up an appointment with a CalWORKs Counselor to develop an Educational Plan/Individual Training Plan (ITP). I will enroll in classes that are on my Educational Plan as written by my counselor.

2. I understand that I will complete a CalWORKs online orientation, summer, fall and spring of attendance.

3. I will notify my counselor immediately if I deviate from my Education Plan (add and/or drop classes) and make an appointment to update the ITP and related forms.

4. If I experience any difficulties such as transportation, childcare, course work or any other area that is interfering with my ability to be successful in my educational and/or work activities, I will notify the CalWORKs Counselor immediately.

5. Every semester, I will maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA.

6. If I'm unable to attend a scheduled appointment, I understand that I must call and cancel the appointment at least 24 hours before the scheduled appointment time.

7. I understand that I will adhere to the EOPS/CalWORKs "No Show" Policy.

8. I will activate my Palomar student e-mail account for updates, information, and requests from Palomar College CalWORKs.

9. I understand that CalWORKs services are dependent on unmet need. Therefore, I know I must apply for Financial Aid even if I have been previously denied.

10. I understand full time status is not required. However, with limited program funds, priority will be given to students who are enrolled in at least 6 units.

I agree to the above stated guidelines and understand that my noncompliance in any of the above areas may affect my eligibility to receive services from the Palomar College CalWORKs program.
