Transfer to the California State University

 The California State University (CSU) is the largest and among the most diverse public university systems in the U.S. with nearly 433,000 students and 44,000 faculty and staff.  The CSU has 23 campuses and over 1,800 bachelor's and master's degree programs in some 240 subject areas.


If you are planning to transfer to the CSU you should become familiar with the requirements for admission, general education, major preparation, and impacted majors

There are transfer tools and tips available on the CSUMentor Web site.  CSUMentor is an online resource designed to help students and their families learn about the CSU system.  The site includes information on CSU admission requirements, financial aid opportunities, and access to the CSU online application.


Students are advised to consult with a De Anza College counselor or academic adviser as early as possible to confirm your choice of classes and to develop an education plan for transfer.


Visit the Meet with a Counselor page to view the academic services available through the De Anza College Counseling & Advising Center or stop by the Counseling & Advising Center located on the 2nd floor of the Registration & Student Services Building during hours of operation.
