ATTENTION! New Office Suite Check-In Process

Beginning Fall 2013, all students accessing the CalWORKS, EOPS/CARE, Scholarship, and WorkAbility III offices will be required to check-in with their student ID at the check-in station. This allows for the programs to keep better track of the students accessing the services and maintain the privacy of other students. Tracking visitors in our offices will provide us with much needed information regarding the needs of our students which can impact the services we provide and staffing needs.

We ask that all of our students cooperate as we work through this new process. Thank you.
