Success at Phoenix College starts here!

New Student Orientation - BearTrax is a mandatory advising and registration session for all new-to-college students who are planning to complete a degree, or transfer to a university.  You will learn about the many resources on campus available to you, to help you be a successful college student.  You will be shown how to navigate My.maricopa.edu student account, activate your student Gmail account, search for classes, learn about degree and certificate programs and how to transfer to a university.  Most important, you will receive academic advising and register for classes.  When you finish your BearTrax session you will have your class schedule in hand.
