Distance learning students enroll using the same registration procedures as other students. First time or returning De Anza students may apply to the college at the Admissions and Records Office or online. Upon acceptance to the college the student receives information on registration including a date and time to register. Registration is available online.
You are encouraged to register for distance learning classes early. There is a high demand for many distance learning classes and classes may fill prior to the end of the registration period.
For courses still available during the add/drop period, a student may obtain an add code from the instructor. Your instructor will usually give our add codes based on where you are on the waitlist, or other criteria they might set. Once you receive the add code through your email, you may add your class online with this code within 24 hours. It is highly recommended that classes are added immediately. Registering in a course at your earliest opportunity assures that subsequent internal processes, generated by your registration, will occur in a timely manner. (This includes access to required accounts to log in to certain online courses.)
Some Distance Learning instructors require students to either attend an on-campus orientation or complete an online orientation. Failure to complete this requirement will result in an automatic drop from that course by your faculty member. Please check the course information to see detailed requirements by course.
