Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid
The Financial Aid Office at EMCC is designed to provide financial assistance to eligible students from federal, state, institutional, and private sources of funding.
One of the most common questions the financial aid office receives is "What is the financial aid process at Estrella Mountain Community College?" To get the answer to this question, see the Financial Aid Process page.

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Spring 2014
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) eligibility for Summer/Fall 2014 will be evaluated after May 14, 2014. Any student who failed to meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards will receive a message in their my.maricopa.eduaccount Message Center. Students who are registered for the Summer 2014 semester and do not meet the required SAP standards lose financial aid eligibility. If applicable, students may file a SAP Appeal for review. If the SAP Appeal is denied, it is the student’s responsibility to pay all charges or set up a payment plan to avoid their classes being dropped for non-payment. Any SAP appeals received after May 22, 2014 may result in classes being dropped for non-payment if the student has not paid all charges or set up a payment plan. Appeals with supporting documentation can be submitted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to the Financial Aid Office (623)935-8871.
