Welcome and congratulations on choosing Paradise Valley Community College!

Your next step is to attend a Puma Pre-Advising Session. All first-time college students and degree-seeking students who plan on completing a degree or transferring to a college or university must meet with a Puma Pre-Advising Navigator before registering for classes.

Designed specifically for new-to-college students, the Puma Pre-Advising Navigator will help you get off to a great start! We look forward to meeting with you to:

  • Discuss your academic goals and help you identify a pathway
  • Explain which classes you will start with based on your high school GPA or your ACT, GED, or placement test scores. Visit our Course Placement page for more information.
  • Walk you through logging in to your Maricopa Student Center
  • Assist you with selecting your first-semester classes
  • Help you understand payment options
  • Introduce you to your Student Success Advisors for your Field of Interest
  • Provide a referral if you need to follow up with one of our helpful team members in another department
