It's easy to get to know us!
The Outreach Office at De Anza organizes a variety of events and activities for prospective students and parents who want to find out more about the college.
Each year, we hold several high school student conferences on campus. And every spring, we invite students and their parents to attend our annual New Student and Parent Open House – where students can learn about De Anza, take placement tests and get a head start on priority enrollment for the fall.
In addition, we send student ambassadors, counselors and other representatives to local high schools for activities that include college fairs, career fairs, classroom presentations, application workshops and placement testing.
We also provide campus tours to interested students, their families, and community members.
