CalWORKs Work-Study

The CalWORKs work-study program provides CalWORKs students with employment opportunities while attending Chabot College and pursuing their educational goals.

Work opportunities are available on-site at Chabot College.


  • Funds earned in Work-Study are not deducted from a student’s monthly cash aid. Students keep 100% of both their employment earnings and cash aid. This is because their work-study is a form of student financial aid, included on their Financial Aid Award letter, and contributes to meeting the cost of college attendance.
  • Work-study hours (20 hours max) can be counted as “core” hours for a student’s Welfare-to-work plan.
  • Build student’s resume and work experience


Chabot student must:

  • Must be receiving County CalWORKs benefits
  • Be enrolled in courses at Chabot College
  • Be in good academic standing, 2.0 GPA minimum
  • Have completed a minimum of 6 units
