Phoenix College is piloting Maricopa on Facebook, an interactive community for ALL Maricopa students, faculty and staff.

Accessing Your Account

Is it safe to use?
Maricopa Community Colleges on Facebook is the official Facebook community for Maricopa Community Colleges. It was created in part to ensure that your personal Facebook profile stays private while allowing you to interact with people at school.
Does this give people access to my Facebook profile?
Maricopa Community Colleges on Facebook only pulls three things from your profile: Your name, your profile photo and your friend list. This is done so that you can see which friends go to Maricopa Community Colleges in the application. Maricopa Community Colleges respects your privacy and does not have special access to your photo albums, status updates, or any other activity of yours in Facebook.
Who can join Maricopa Community Colleges on Facebook?
Maricopa Community Colleges on Facebook is for students, faculty, and staff of Maricopa Community Colleges.
