CalWORKs Remote Services
The CalWORKs office is currently closed for all in-person appointments. We are offering appointments via zoom and phone, which can be scheduled through the appointment scheduling links available on the CalWORKs Canvas or by calling the CalWORKs office.
CAMPUS OPERATIONS UPDATE FOR SPRING SEMESTER
Fullerton College is prepared to gradually reopen in-person services and offer more face-to-face classes starting the week of February 7. Due to the unfortunate surge Orange County is experiencing from the highly transmittable nature of the Omicron variant, Fullerton College started the Spring Semester on Monday, January, 24, with mostly remote classes and services through February 4.
COVID-19 SAFETY & Student Check-In Procedure
All students taking classes in-person or accessing services on-campus are REQUIRED to visit the health check-in area where they are screened for COVID-19 symptoms.

Students with approved exemptions to the NOCCCD vaccine mandate must test weekly when they come to campus for in-person classes or services. COVID-19 testing details can be found here.
WHAT IS CalWORKs?

Fullerton College CalWORKs program provides resources, support, and liaison advocacy necessary to help students meet the county requirements and improve their educational and employment opportunities through enrollment and completion of a degree or job training programs.
