New Students 

If you haven't yet applied to become a De Anza student, we recommend that you follow these steps to enroll in Adapted PE courses.

Apply to De Anza College

De Anza College uses the statewide application system known as OpenCCC. This online system is designed to accommodate most students. Complete the De Anza College application and you will receive your 8 digit campuswide ID (CWID) number and password to access the college’s MyPortal site.


Priority Enrollment

Remember to declare a major (not "undecided") and select a goal of transfer, degree or certificate when you fill out the application.

Submit a Disability Verification Form

Complete a Disability Verification form to verify your disability. 


Give your doctor or appropriate health professional the following documentation:

  1. Instruction Letter
  2. Disability Verification Form
  3. Disability Definitions and Documentation sheet

Submit the completed Disability Verification Form to the Disability Support Services office. You can

See a DSS Counselor

Once you complete the steps above, you will be scheduled to meet with a Disability Support Services counselor, who can assist you with arrangements for your classes, services and disability accommodations.

If you have any questions about your appointment, send an email to dss@deanza.edu or call 408.864.8753.

Current or Continuing Students

We are sending online registration packets to all continuing students. If you don’t receive one, please contact Michael Fosnaugh in the division office for Disability Support Programs and Services at De Anza College.

We will check to make sure you have a current Disability Verification form on file and then send you an electronic registration packet for students with disabilities.

The registration packet will include a DSS registration form for the upcoming quarter and a petition to repeat classes, along with  instructions on how to complete these forms. 

You will be able to complete these forms on your computer using Adobe Sign to sign electronically. (If you have taken APE courses before, you will need to complete both forms. You won’t be able to register for classes until your petition to repeat classes has been approved by the dean.)

Any questions? Please contact fosnaughmichael@deanza.edu or ape@deanza.edu
