Meet Your ISP Counselors

Please Note

  • Prospective students: Contact the ISP Admission office at: daintladmissions@deanza.edu
  • Newly admitted students:  please wait to receive workshop information on academic counseling, assessment, registration and orientation before scheduling an appointment/drop-in session with a counselor.
  • We recommend you log into Canvas (a program for online classrooms) to review the following:

Tip:

  • If you are not able to log into the Canvas system, it is most likely because you have very recently been admitted to De Anza College. Please wait a few days, then re-try. If the issue continues, contact the ISP Admission office at: daintladmissions@deanza.edu
  • Please see these helpful Canvas resources

Contact an International Student Academic Counselor for help relating to your academic goal and educational plan.
