Programs & Policies

Policies

Students have the responsibility to understand federal and institutional regulations regarding financial aid.

Visit the links below to review policies and procedures:

  • Standards of Academic Progress: Federal regulations (CFR 668.32(f) and 668.34) require a student to move toward the completion of a degree or certificate within an eligible program when receiving financial aid. Specific requirements for academic progress for financial aid recipients are applied differently than Scholastic Standards. Federal regulations state that Academic Progress Standards must include a review of all periods of enrollment, regardless of whether or not aid was received. Students will be evaluated using the standards listed in the policy. Failure to meet any of these minimum standards will result in loss of title IV, HEA program (federal financial aid) eligibility.

Note: Only those with a lawful presence in the U.S. may qualify for MCCCD scholarships or federal financial aid. Any information you provide about your legal status when you apply for financial aid or scholarships may be subject to mandatory reporting to the federal immigration authorities under Arizona law. This does not apply to private scholarship funds held in and distributed by the Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation.
