Disbursement dates apply only to students who have received a Financial Aid Award Notification. The notification will be sent to the student's Message Center at: My.maricopa.edu.
Late applicants and late paperwork submissions may delay, or change, your financial aid award. In some cases missing a deadline may result in a loss of qualification for aid.
If you are awarded financial aid after the semester has started, book advance dates, and financial aid/loan disbursement dates may not apply to you. Financial aid funds will not be deposited to your bank account or be available on your Maricopa ONE Card until after you are awarded.
Allow 2-7 business days for refunds to deposit to your bank account or Maricopa ONE Debit Card. It may take up to 15 days to receive mailed checks.
Check online at my.maricopa.edu under Account Inquiry for Drop/Add deadlines and tuition due dates.

✽ NOTE: Fall semester classes starting after 9/1/15 or spring 2016 classes starting after 1/26/2016 are considered late-start classes. Funds for late-start classes will disburse 5 days after your earliest class.
If you do not maintain your original level of enrollment; full-time (12+ credit hours), 3/4 time (9 - 11.5 credits), or half-time (6-8.5 credit hours), have not attended or dropped your late-starting classes, or your class(es) gets cancelled, your aid will be adjusted accordingly and you may incur a debt.
If your appeal and/or maximum timeframe is submitted by the priority deadline it is highly likely that a decision will be made by the beginning of the semester. However, the financial aid processing time-frame may take a minimum of at least 30 business days after the appeal decision has been made.
Each semester, or term, has a deadline to submit a Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) appeal and/or a Maximum Time Frame (MTF) appeal forms for financial aid consideration. Failure to submit the required appeals form, or forms, by the semester deadline date will result is loss of financial aid eligibility for the semester. Late appeals will still be reviewed and if approved, financial aid consideration will be moved forward to the subsequent semester or term.
