Summer Admission Information

Congratulations on your summer admission as an F-1 visa student at De Anza College! This page is specifically designed for F-1 visa students who have successfully applied and been admitted to begin  studies in the summer session.

Summer 2024 Orientation Events

We provide virtual workshops, a one-day online orientation, and an in-person check-in event for new students beginning their studies in the summer. Please be aware that international students studying from within the U.S. for the 2024 summer session are required to attend the in person check-in event.

Explore the orientation page for additional information.

What You Need to Know to Start in the Summer Session:

Summer session is slightly different from our regular fall, winter and spring quarters.

  • Summer Session is Accelerated
    Most summer classes are only 6 weeks long, whereas regular quarter-length classes in fall, winter, and spring last 12 weeks. Therefore, we strongly recommend that all students limit their enrollment to no more than 2 classes to enhance academic success, as the same amount of material is covered in a shorter timeframe.
  • Full-time Enrollment for Summer Session
    F-1 students are required to enroll in a minimum of 6 units for the summer quarter (compared to 12 units for other terms). These 6 units must be on-campus or hybrid.
    Please note: Failure to comply will result in the termination of your F-1 status.

Please note that the summer session fees aren't included in the annual estimated cost since it is typically optional. However, if you are starting your studies in summer, then summer is not optional for you! You should enroll full-time (minimum 6 units) and expect extra expenses listed below:
