The first appointment will take approximately one hour. Please check in at the CalWORKs department at least ten minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. The clerical staff will make a copy of your NOA/VOB and picture ID. The staff will provide you with a CalWORKs Intake Form and a Release of Information form.
During your appointment with the counselor/advisor, the focus will be on your individual situation and case, and your professional, academic, and personal goals.
If you have not applied to Citrus College yet, you may do so prior to coming in for your appointment
through the Admission and Records website.
We will refer you to Financial Aid to apply for the California College Promise Grant Application and FAFSA. If you qualify, the fee waiver will waive the fees for your enrollment. You will most likely only be responsible for a small student service fee, and health fee.
We will also refer you to the
Extended Opportunities and Services, also known as EOP&S. The EOP&S department provides additional support services for the CalWORKs student. Next, we will refer you to the Testing Center for an assessment test.
There is no appointment necessary, but you should allow at least an hour and a half to take the test although the test is not timed.
The results of this test will help to place you in an appropriate class based on your skills in English and math.
