Learning About De Anza CollegeThere are a number of ways to learn more about De Anza’s services and educational programs.
College PublicationsThe De Anza College Catalog is updated and published yearly and is available in print, on-line and in alternate format, on request. It contains all the essential information about De Anza’s educational programs and policies. The catalog requirements in effect for the year you enter De Anza remain the ones you must meet, as long as you maintain enrollment. Keep a copy in your files. The schedule of classes, also available in print and on-line, lists all courses offered for a given quarter.
The college’s individual divisions and departments may also print publications with essential information. A weekly student paper, La Voz, is published by and for students. It's available in print and distributed on campus on Mondays and is available to be read on-line. Use all these to become informed about the college. To request college information in alternate format, see Section Two: Alternate Media.
