A social security number (SSN) is not required to apply. However, if you are applying
for financial aid you will be required to submit a SSN. De Anza College is required
to report all tuition payments to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) every year. Students
should update their student accounts with a SSN or taxpayer identification number
(TIN) as soon as possible after applying. This will ensure that your tuition payments
are accuratley reported every year to the IRS.
Although tests are not needed to be admitted, all new college students must take
an assessment test in math, English, and/or science if they are planning to earn an
AA/AS, certificates, and/or transfer. (International students are also required to
complete assessment.) Test scores are used to see which class level is best for you.
If you are a first time college student entering in the fall quarter, and/or planning
to earn an A.A., certificate, or transfer please see Counseling to create an education
plan. Students who attend Counseling 50 during summer session may register before
other new students, and will receive help choosing courses during orientation. If
you do not attend Counseling 50, you will be able to register online on your registration
If you want to know what classes you need to graduate or transfer, see a counselor/advisor
in the Counseling Center.
You can find out more about De Anza degrees and certificates or review the De Anza
College Catalog. Transfer students should check www. assist.org for appropriate transfer
courses; a counselor/advisor can also help with this information.
Payment in full is required at the time of registration and when adding subsequent
classes. If student has a cumulative fee balance of $100 or more on the drop for nonpayment
dates, all enrolled classed will be dropped due to nonpayment. Once dropped, students
will need to re-register for the class with no guarantees that any preferred times
and dates will be available. Students with any unpaid balances will have a registration
hold and will be unable to register for future terms or receive a transcript until
all fees are paid.
