Today is a rather big day for more than a few dividend investors. That's because we have a plethora of ASX shares that are scheduled to trade ex-dividend tomorrow. And that means that if you want the dividends from those companies to arrive in your bank account, rather than someone else's, today is the last day you can buy the shares with that benefit attached. Remember, companies going ex-dividend will normally see a share price drop on their ex-div date.

So here are 5 such ASX dividend shares that are scheduled to trade ex-dividend tomorrow.

5 ASX dividend shares going ex-dividend tomorrow

South32 Ltd (ASX: S32)

Mining company South32 is about to cut off access to its upcoming interim dividend. The diversified miner will be paying out a fully franked dividend worth 8.7 US cents (AUD value to be determined) on 7 April.

Rio Tinto Limited (ASX: RIO)

Rio is another mining giant that is set to trade ex-div tomorrow. In this iron ore giant's case, we know that investors will receive $6.6284 in fully franked dividends per share on 21 April. That's the largest interim dividend Rio has ever paid.

G8 Education Ltd (ASX: GEM)

A company in a slightly different sector, G8 Education shares will also be going ex-dividend tomorrow. Investors can look forward to a fully franked payment of 3 cents per share on 1 April (no April Fool's here). But get in quick if that takes your fancy.

Michael Hill International Ltd (ASX: MHJ)

Jewellery company Michael hill is next up. Michael Hill shares are also fast closing the window to receive this company's upcoming dividend. The jeweller will be forking out 3.5 cents per share, this one unfranked, later this month on 25 March.

Regis Healthcare Ltd (ASX: REG)

Regis is last on our list, but not necessarily least. Investors who own the shares before tomorrow can expect to receive a partially franked at 50% dividend of 3.52 cents per share on 8 April next month.
