New Employee Benefits

Congratulations and Welcome to Phoenix College!  Phoenix College embraces the principles of evaluation, communication, collaboration and responsibility.

The Maricopa Community Colleges (MCCCD) is pleased to offer its employees a comprehensive Flexible Benefit Program to all Benefit Eligible Employees. For more information about the benefits offered by MCCCD please visit: MCCCD Benefits Page


You are eligible to gain Employee Benefits if you are employed by MCCCD in one of the following categories and occupy a budgeted position.

  • Employees who are regularly scheduled to work at least 30 hours a week.
  • Residential faculty members compensated by MCCCD who carry at least a three-quarter (.75 FTE) teaching load (visiting or part-time faculty members are not eligible).

When Does My Coverage Begin?

New employee - coverage begins on the first day of the month after 30 days have elapsed from your start date, provided you have enrolled and submitted your elections online in HCM Self-Service and submitted all required documents to the Benefits department (District Office). You must have completed at least one hour of service with MCCCD. 

Per IRS regulations, employees must sign up for their benefits prior to their benefits start date.  You may complete your benefit elections online in HCM Self-Service and submit any required documents at the New Employee Orientation, but not later than the deadline date provided in your New Employee Orientation invitation email.
