Mayland Financial Aid Operations
In order to comply with guidance from state and local officials to proactively limit the spread of COVID-19 and to protect the health and safety of students and employees, the Mayland Financial Aid Department will be working from a distance, rather than in office, until further notice.

We will primarily respond to questions and concerns via email but we are able to respond to telephone numbers if an email is not available.
CAREs Act Emergency Funds
From recent conversations through the media, you all may be aware that the Federal government has designated a portion of the CAREs Act as Emergency Funds to be disbursed to students as emergency financial aid grants. The purpose of these emergency financial aid grants is to help cover expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus.
At this time, please know that we at Mayland Community College are diligently working through guidance from both federal and state government, as well as the Department of Education, to determine how to access these funds and the criteria for disbursing the funds. We are learning more every day and we will be sure to share this information with our students and community when it is made available to us. Please be sure to check our website for this update as well as other coronavirus updates.
