Congratulations To Our Prize Winners!

Three lucky students attended Enrollment Day and had their names selected in a random drawing to win sets of Apple AirTags – handy items for keeping track of stuff!

Gabriel WongWinners include Yaretzi Miranda, Gabriel Wong and Priscilla Yee.

Wong, pictured here, is 18 and will graduate from Milpitas High School this year. He plans to attend De Anza this fall, although he said he might get an early start by taking a class or two this summer.

Wong said he enjoyed the Enrollment Day campus tour and learning about different majors at the Village tents in the Main Quad.

Enrollment Day Is Your Day To

  • Apply for admission – if you haven't done this already
  • Complete orientation* – this helps you qualify for priority registration
  • Learn about your Village at De Anza
  • Tour the campus, meet instructors and get answers to your questions about classes and majors, financial aid, student services and more!

See below for a schedule of activities and a campus map

Family Members Are Welcome, Too!

We'll hold two special information sessions for parents and family members, with experts who can answer questions about college costs, financial aid, academic programs, student services and other topics. Your family member can attend either session, at the time they prefer.

Discover Your Village!

Enrollment Day is a great way for new and prospective students (and their families) to find out about everything you need for a great start at De Anza College, the college that's always Tops in Transfer – and Tops in Career Training, too!

It's also a great opportunity to discover your Village at De Anza. Villages provide supportive communities and relevant resources for students, faculty and staff members who share an interest in related majors or subjects.

We'll have Village representatives on hand in the Main Quad and in the Village Centers around campus, to answer questions and tell you about events and activities coming up this year.
