Your Success Starts with BearTrax

BearTrax is a required advising and registration session for all students who are new to college and are planning to complete a degree or to transfer to a university. During this orientation session, you’ll explore the campus resources available to help you be a successful college student. Those resources include your my.maricopa.edu student account and your student Gmail account, as well as available degree and certificate programs. 

You’ll also learn how to search for classes and how to transfer to a university. Plus, you’ll get academic advising and help in registering for classes. And you’ll complete your BearTrax session with your class schedule in hand!  


Here’s how to sign up for BearTrax

Exploratory: Not sure what you want to study? If you aren’t ready to commit to a program or major, don’t worry. With guidance from academic advising, counseling, and career services, you can explore your interests, consider your options, and get the tools you need to make informed decisions that help you pursue your passions!

Declared: Already set on your career field? If you know which type of degree you'll need and how it will help you reach your goals, that’s great!
