Course Information

De Anza College operates on a quarter system with twelve-week sessions beginning in late September and early January, April and June. Application to the College and online registration is available by going to the De Anza College web site.

Students register for online classes using the same process as students in on-campus academic courses. Online classes are equivalent to regular on-campus classes in credits, transfer, and eligibility for financial aid.

Course Syllabi and Instructor Web Sites
Many instructors have online syllabi, or web sites with information specific to individual courses.

Online Orientations
For many courses online or on-campus orientations are required. Refer to De Anza Schedule of Classes course footnotes to see if a particular class has a required on-campus or online orientation. Information on orientation dates, times, places and deadlines is provided through the Online Orientation link on Online Education website, as it becomes available usually 2 weeks before the quarter starts.
