New Student Advising

All  students new to college (with no prior or university credits) or new to Maricopa Community College District - will be required to meet with an Academic Advisor in order to register for classes for most programs of study. You  can fulfill this requirement by attending a New Student Advising session "Thunderbird Experience"  at the Southern and Dobson campus, or meeting with an advisor individually at the Red Mountain campus. 

Thunderbird Experience: New Student Advising

Available for Southern and Dobson campus students, this is a group advising session that allows you to meet with other students and discuss important aspects of college success. You will be introduced to the programs MCC offers, various resources available to you as a student, discuss important policies, and register for classes with the assistance of an advisor.

Please ensure you have completed your testing requirements and been admitted prior to attending a session.

Please sign up for a Thunderbird Experience session by visiting the New Student Room (EC114) in the Enrollment Center. They are currently available Monday-Thursday 9:00 am, 12:00 pm, and 3:00 pm. Starting in August, they will also be available on Fridays at 9:00 am and 12:00 pm.
