*Priority Service Dates: Students who have a complete financial aid file by the Priority Service Deadlines will be reviewed before the tuition due date. You can find any outstanding items on the Financial Aid “To Do” list on the my.maricopa.edu self-service site. Students who complete their financial aid file after the Priority Service Deadlines will still be considered for financial aid but must pay their tuition by their due date or sign up for the e-Cashier Payment Plan to avoid being dropped from classes for non-payment.

*Disbursement Schedule: Financial aid awards are scheduled to post to student accounts at their home institution during the second full week after their earliest class for the term starts.   Excess aid (the amount remaining after all tuition, fees, book advance, and any other related charges are covered) will be disbursed through the MSRP process.  Students should not expect their funds any earlier than the third week after their earliest class start, dependent upon the MSRP delivery method selected.
