Accessing Your Work from Anywhere
Many of Maricopa’s key applications and services are accessible online anywhere from your Maricopa-issued device (desktop, laptop, tablet) or from your personally-owned device (desktop, laptop, smart device). A valid Maricopa-issued MEID and password are required to access these resources.
Links to several popular applications are listed below. If a particular application and/or service is not listed, chances are it is specific to your location and/or college. If that is the case, please visit the web page for your location and/or college.

Information Security and Privacy Awareness
Regardless of where you may be working, information security and privacy are important.
When using a Maricopa-owned or your own personal device to perform work-related functions including access, creation and use of company data, you must be aware of and comply with Maricopa’s IT directive pertaining to the Information Classification and Handling of data and applications you use. If you have questions, please contact the Information Technologies Services Information Security team.
