The Spring 2017 deadline for F-1 international students to pay tuition is Friday April 21st!*
- You can pay online through MyPortal, by mailing a check, or in person at the Cashier (Registration & Student Services Building, across from the bookstore). De Anza does not accept wire transfers for payment!
Check here for Refunds Policies & Procedures
*Note the extended Cashier hours during the first two weeks of the quarter listed on the Cashier website.
April 22nd is the last day to ADD classes for spring quarter 2017.
April 23rd is the last day to DROP classes with no record of a grade.* Keep in mind:
- No Late Adds or Drops will be accepted. All adds and no- show drops must be completed the first two weeks of the 12-week term (or by deadlines in MyPortal for late starting/nonconforming classes).
June 2nd is the last day to drop with a "W."
- "W" (Withdraw) is now assigned instead of “Grade of no Record” as in past terms.*
*Remember you must maintain at least 12 units per quarter. A 'W' is not a grade. Therefore, it doe not count toward your full course load (12 units). Always come to the ISP office to meet with a counselor and/or immigration advisor before dropping any class!!
Students who are in their second on later quarter at De Anza and wish to take more than 21.5 units must petition through the ISP office during the first week of the quarter. Obtain an add code from the professor and then come to the ISP office to see a counselor. Petitions will not be considered before the first day of classes!
If you wish to take a class at another school like Foothill College while you are a full time student at De Anza College, you can do it through Concurrent Enrollment . You must complete the form and have it approved/signed by a counselor in the ISP office before you are allowed to take classes at another institution.
IMPORTANT: You must follow policies/regulations for adding/dropping, paying fees, etc. of the school where you will be taking a class.
Seeing a counselor
We now have international student academic counselors in the ISP office! Read these guidelines on when to drop in or schedule an appointment. Keep in mind:
- Drop-in hours ONLY during the first week of spring quarter
- You must come into the ISP office to schedule an appointment; no appointments will be made by phone or email).
Health Insurance cards are emailed to students quarterly within the first 2 weeks of a new quarter. If you do not receive yours, please send an email to Angelica Strongone with your full name and De Anza ID# to request a copy.
Important note about the health insurance fees: The health insurance fee is NOT automatically refunded if a student drops all classes from De Anza. It is the students' responsibility to contact the ISP office before the end of your last quarter at De Anza College. Failing to notify the ISP office will mean that you are responsible for health insurance fees charges.
Going outside the U.S.? Traveling home for break?
You need to submit your I-20 to the ISP office. Remember there are hundreds of requests for winter & summer break so submit yours early to make sure it's ready in time for your departure date.
3. Bring a PHOTO ID to pick up your I-20.
If you decide to leave De Anza College, you must notify the International Student Programs and complete the EXIT Form. ISP staff must transfer or terminate your SEVIS record properly.
Also, please check MyPortal to make sure you don't have outstanding fees on your account. If you do, be sure to pay your financial responsibility. Accounts left with holds, tuition and/or health insurance outstanding fees will become a problem if you decide to return in the future or request transcripts and/or degrees, and it will also affect your personal credit (financial) score in the U.S. If you have any questions, be sure to check in with the ISP office staff BEFORE you leave the country.
