We’re Here to Help You Achieve Your Educational Goals.
Continuing and Returning Students
If you've completed two or more quarters, the General Counseling and Advising Center is the place to come for assistance with planning and achieving your academic, career, transfer and personal goals.
While you won't be able to visit us in person during the 2020 fall quarter, you can still speak with a counselor or academic adviser by phone, email or online video. Use this button to learn how.
New Students and College Promise Students
De Anza also has counselors who specialize in working with new students, students in the Promise program, or students involved with several other programs and Learning Communities.
You can find a complete list of counselors for individual programs by checking the Our Counselors directory. If you're in your first or second quarter at De Anza, or if you're in the De Anza College Promise, you should contact the Office of Outreach for academic counseling and other assistance.
Drop-In Sessions for Continuing Students
You can have a quick online chat with a counselor or academic adviser – without an appointment. These sessions are only 10-15 minutes and are meant for quick questions regarding academic, career, transfer and personal counseling and advising.
