De Anza College shall take all steps necessary to provide a positive educational and employment environment that encourages equal educational opportunities. The college will actively seek to educate staff and students on the deleterious effects of expressions of hatred or contempt based on race, color, national or ethnic origin,
age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, or physical or psychological disability; and will promote equality and mutual respect and understanding among all groups and individuals.
De Anza College will not tolerate behavior that infringes on the safety of any student. A student shall not intimidate, harass another student through words or actions. Such behavior includes direct physical contact, such as hitting or shoving; verbal assaults, such as teasing or name- calling; social isolation or manipulation; and cyberbullying by any means including email, text and social networks or media.
De Anza offers certain courses on a noncredit basis. Noncredit classes do not count toward a degree or academic certificate, and students do not earn college credit units. However, students can earn a noncredit certificate after completing a series of required classes.
Noncredit courses are intended for students who want to gain general knowledge or expand their knowledge on a particular topic, learn new skills or upgrade existing skills, or prepare for taking credit courses. They can be a starting point for many individuals on a pathway to learning basic skills, preparing to enter the workforce or transitioning to for-credit programs.

designated parking lot areas for smoking areas will be clearly marked. Those rules are based on California Government Code Section 7596 and district Board Policy 3217. Noncompliance will result in fines.

Unless the course syllabus or the instructor state otherwise, students are responsible for arranging their own transportation. under state regulations (Title 5, § 55220(h)), each student making a field trip or excursion shall be deemed to have waived all claims against the district for injury, accident, illness or death occurring during, or by reason of, the field trip or excursion by completing the required Student Field Trip/Excursion Agreement Voluntary Assumption of Risk Form.
