Some other programs and learning communities have designated counselors for their students. You can find a directory of all De Anza counseling offices on the Our Counselors webpage

If you've completed two or more quarters, the General Counseling and Advising Center is a great place to obtain assistance with planning and achieving your academic, career, transfer and personal goals.

Note for Returning Students  

  • You must reapply for admission if you didn't take classes last quarter. (It's ok if you skipped summer session.)
  • Don't forget to declare a major (not "undecided") and select a goal of transfer, degree or certificate if you want to qualify for priority enrollment.

Filing for Your Certificate or Degree

You can file for your degree or certificate at any time during the quarter in which you are graduating, but you must apply no later than the last day of the quarter in order for your degree or certificate to be conferred for that quarter.
