EOPS & CARE Application Process

Step 1.  If you are new to Hartnell College, please complete the Hartnell College Registration Steps. You will need a Hartnell College Student ID number to submit your EOPS application.

Step 2.  Apply for Financial Aid at Hartnell College by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Act Application (CADAA) before submitting your EOPS application.

Step 3.  Register for classes using PAWS Self Serve. Before submitting your EOPS application, you must be enrolled as a full-time student (12 units or more). Exceptions may apply for students in DSPS.

Step 4.  Complete and submit the EOPS/CARE Application online. We have one application for the EOPS and CARE program. When you submit the EOPS/CARE application, your eligibility for both programs will be reviewed. If you are applying for the CARE program, please upload a "Verification of Benefits" to your application or email it to hcceops@hartnell.edu.
