What is CalWORKs?
The CalWORKs Program is a partnership between Allan Hancock College and the Department
of Social Services to serve Welfare to Work recipients who are currently receiving
CalWORKs cash aid assistance. The college’s CalWORKs program offers an array of supportive
services designed to assist students in obtaining the educational level they require
to transition off of cash assistance and ultimately achieve long-term self-sufficiency.

UCSB Transfer Student
I moved to the United States in 2012. My English was very limited, so I decided to enroll in noncredit ESL courses in the summer of that same year. By fall of 2013 after hard work and dedication, I was ready to transition to credit ESL. The sooner I started credit ESL the better, but as a new California resident the tuition was more expensive since I had to pay out of state tuition, so I decided to wait for a year to attend credit class at AHC. AHC has great student support programs that I utilized; for example, AIM, EOPS, CAN/TRIO, and the Tutorial Center. I recommend everyone to take advantage of these services and to ask for help from your instructors when needed.
