2014-2015 AA/AS Degree and Certificate Programs

The main objective of the certificate and AA/AS degree programs is to help you gain employment or upgrade your skills in an occupation.

Students interested in transferring to a 4-year college or university should consult with an advisor/counselor to explore their options. With careful planning, it is possible to transfer and to obtain an AA or AS degree.

To earn an AA/AS degree, students also need to complete De Anza's GE requirements for the AA/AS degree.

To file for graduation, download, fill out and print the PDF Graduation Application for an Associates Degree  and do a degree audit through DegreeWorks in MyPortal.
