About Transfer Planning

Successful transfer requires careful planning and course selection. Students can learn more about transfer requirements and guaranteed admission opportunities to four-year colleges and universities by enrolling in Counseling (COUN) 50: Introduction to College (1 unit). After completing COUN 50 students are encouraged to consult periodically with a De Anza College counselor or academic adviser to review and update their educational plan for transfer.


As part of its transfer services mission, De Anza College has established formal articulation agreements and a transfer admission agreement/guarantee (TAA/TAG) program with select four-year colleges and universities.
