Norco College's CalWORKs program works in collaboration with the Department of Public Social Services to assist you with your education, training and job skills. CalWORKs (California Work Opportunity and Responsibility for Kids) is the state's welfare-to-work program for families with children. 

Families eligible to receive CalWORKs Temporary Assistance must have:

  • Minor children in the home who lack the necessary support because of the absence, disability, death or unemployment of one or both parents.
  • In addition to parents, other relatives (such as grandparents) who are caring for minor children may also be eligible.
  • A pregnant woman with no other children can also qualify for CalWORKs benefits.

Applying for CalWORKs requires a visit​ to a local Department of Public Social Services (DPSS) office. ​

Visit our Steps to Enroll page for instructions on how to apply to Norco College, how to access and complete the college orientation, and how to get assistance with career and academic counseling.
