Transfer Planning


About the Transfer Planning Website

This website is designed to help students facilitate transfer from De Anza College to the California State University (CSU), University of California (UC), and California independent colleges and universities and out-of-state institutions.


As part of its transfer services mission, De Anza College has established formal articulation agreements and a transfer admission agreement/guarantee (TAA/TAG) program with select colleges and universities.


Successful transfer requires careful planning and course selection. Students can learn more about transfer requirements and guaranteed admission opportunities to four-year colleges and universities by enrolling in Counseling 200: Orientation to College. After completing COUN 200 students are strongly advised to consult with a De Anza College counselor or academic adviser, on a periodic basis, to review your educational plan for transfer.


Guaranteed Admission Programs

Eligible students may be guaranteed admission to a four-year college or university.  For a list of participating campuses at De Anza College, visit the Transfer Admission Agreement/Guarantee (TAA/TAG) page.
