Know you’re going to be out of town the first week of the semester? Unable to get to campus on certain days? No problem. Maricopa Community Colleges offer Flex Start classes, the perfect solution for students looking to find ways to balance a crowded schedule.

Available now, a variety of Flex Start options make it easy to build a class term that fits your lifestyle. MCCCD offers hundreds of classes that start on various dates throughout the semester with flexible learning options such as in-person, online, live-online, and hybrid that provide creative ways for students to stay on track and complete their educational goals.

Where can you find Flex Start classes? Simply visit the Find a Class page and enter “Flex Start” in the general keyword search. Then choose a course subject, semester, and preferred college. You’ll discover multiple options. Be sure to read the class notes section to learn the specific details of the classes you choose.

For example, if you search for accounting classes at Chandler-Gilbert Community College (CGCC), the search will bring up all the Flex Start classes for the current semester at CGCC. Or, leave the college choice unchecked and view all the classes available across the district.

Next, depending on whether you are a new student, returning student, high school student or non-credit student, visit our new enrollment information webpage which will assist you in registering for the classes you desire. Recently, we eliminated steps that were beneficial to our process, but frustrating for users. Our newly redesigned website makes it easier to navigate the enrollment process.

Flex Start classes benefit many different types of students, including those who prefer taking shorter term classes that start later in the semester. Our flex start classes are offered as 14-week, 12-week, and 8-week classes, which can help students maximize their course load to finish their degree sooner.

Choosing to enroll in Flex Start classes can help provide you with a sense of control by making a commitment to your future. Begin working toward your educational goals, classes are always available, begin your journey today!
