Frequently Asked Questions


How does a student register for an online or hybrid course?
You can register the same as for any course, over the phone, in person, by sending a fax, or by mail.  If you have already taken a class at any MCCCD community college, you can also register online through your Student Center account. The phone number to PVCC's Admissions & Records office is 602-787-7000.

What is an MEID?  What if I don’t have, know, or am having trouble with my MEID or Password?
An MEID is given to you when you enroll and register for your first class with any of the Maricopa Community Colleges. It is a 10-digit alpha-numeric number that usually starts with the first three letters of your first name. It is used to access many services throughout all the MCCCD colleges, and also becomes the first part of your official college email address. An initial password is also given to you, which you will be able to change. If you are having trouble with your MEID, contact Admissions & Records office is 602-787-7000.
