Before you enroll
For degree seeking students, you will need to choose an academic path to complete your admissions application. If you are unsure of the path you want to pursue, contact an academic advisor or a career advisor.
For non-degree seeking students (taking a class, pursuing personal interest, etc.) you do not need to select an academic plan for enrollment.
Maricopa Community Colleges provide equal access to students in their educational and campus experience through academic accommodations. If you need assistance, please contact Disability Services at the college of your choice.
