Sign up for New Student Advising Session

Welcome to Paradise Valley Community College! 

We look forward to meeting you at a REQUIRED Advising Session. These sessions have been designed to help new students prepare for their first semester of college.  During the session, an advisor will guide you toward choosing a field of study, help you interpret placement scores (determines which math, reading and English courses you will register for), help you create a first semester schedule, guide you through your Student Center and help you register for selected courses and REQUIRED New Student Orientation.

It is VERY IMPORTANT that STEP 1 and STEP 2 ( of the enrollment process be completed in their entirety, otherwise it will be difficult to register for classes during your Advisement Session.

Please bring your MEID (Maricopa Enterprise Identification number, VWXYZ12345), password, student ID number, and a valid photo ID. If you don't know your MEID, or you need to reset your password, visit

All Advising Sessions are located in the E-Building in the Computer Commons (south of the Welcome Center).

Please arrive 15 minutes before session begins. Students who are late will be asked to select another session. Due to space, children/guests are not allowed to attend.

Advising Sessions approximately 2 hours.
