CARES Act Disbursements - Spring 2020


Estrella Mountain Community College will be disbursing CARES Act funds directly to students.

These funds are awarded by the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund through the CARES Act to support students through this challenging time.

Students who qualify for emergency funds were enrolled in an EMCC financial-aid eligible certificate, degree, transfer pathway, or workforce programs and received a Pell Grant or subsidized loan at EMCC during the Spring 2020 semester.

Students must also have attempted at least six credit hours at EMCC during the Spring 2020 semester prior to March 13, 2020, were enrolled in at least one 3-credit, in person or hybrid course still in session as of  March 13, 2020, took the majority of their courses at EMCC, and met other eligibility criteria.

If you qualify, you will receive an emergency grant posted to the refund method listed in your Student Center beginning the week of May 11, 2020. Please monitor your Maricopa student email for these updates.
