Transfer Day is a college fair held annually every fall. This event provides prospective transfer students the opportunity to meet, visit with and collect materials from admissions and outreach representatives from select four-year colleges and universities.
For many of the participating institutions, Transfer Day represents the only time during the academic year that they will be available in person on the De Anza College campus to provide information about their transfer programs.
Participating institutions* include the following:
- California State University (CSU) campuses
- University of California (UC) campuses
- California independent/private colleges and universities
- Out-of-state colleges and universities
Keep in mind that you may need to wait in line to speak with the representative at some college/university tables. We recommend that you come early and prepared with your questions!
NOTE: List of Transfer Day participant institutions is subject to change or cancellation without notice. Check back periodically for updates.
* Western Undergraduate Exchange
Select transfer institutions participate in the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE, "woo-wee") program which provides reduced tuition to eligible out-of-state resident students.
Learn more about the WUE program at http://www.wiche.edu/wue
Suggestions: How to make the most of Transfer Day
- Research prospective colleges and universities prior to Transfer Day.
Do your transfer homework early. After learning which colleges and universities will be participating, take time to research a prospective school's majors/programs of study, housing options, financial aid, scholarships, student life, student support services/programs and other areas of interest which are available on the Web.
- Come prepared with a list of questions.
Be sure to write down any questions you may have while doing your research, especially if you are unable to find the answers on the Web. One of the benefits of Transfer Day is that university representatives are available in person to answer your questions and to provide insight and materials to help you determine if the university meets your needs and interests.

- Remember to bring the basics.
Although many participating colleges/universities have provided complimentary supplies to students in the past, we recommend that you bring a pen/pencil and a notepad or a tablet device, and a bag to collect college brochures and materials.
