Maricopa Emergency Management System Alert

  Spring 2021 SEMESTER COVID-19 UPDATE: The EMCC campus is open to EMCC employees and students attending on-campus classes. All student support services are available online. Students are encouraged to contact their instructors for additional information.

Required Orientation, Advisement, and Registration (ROAR)


The purpose of the Required Orientation, Advisement, and Registration (ROAR) session is to help new students maximize their potential and successfully manage their college experience! ROAR outlines campus resources available and introduces new students to their student success team, who provide a class schedule to be used to register for first-semester classes.

In an effort to improve student success, all new students interested in completing a degree or transferring to a university are required to complete a ROAR session. We have a support team that values you and is excited to assist you and introduce you to our campus and culture.

Due to the COVID-19 campus closure, all in-person ROAR sessions have been canceled, but you can complete your ROAR online!
