The Testing Center, Knowledge Commons and Technology Support Helpdesk will have normal Saturday hours.  

Here are a few tips to help you save time:
  • Try our new QLess service to schedule appointments.
  • Take advantage of self-serve options like the financial aid steps and my.maricopa.edu to-do list.
  • Avoid the lunchtime rush between 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. and try to call before 10 a.m. You can always leave a message requesting a callback.
  • Avoid calling or coming in on Mondays and consider a mid-week visit.
  • Come prepared before you call or schedule a visit by creating a "to do" list.
