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 will also meet with your academic advisor who will help you understand degree requirements, show you how to search for and select your classes. You will complete your Bear Trax session with a first-semester class schedule in hand, an understanding of options for paying for classes and tools to help with your successful transition to college life.
