De Anza Distance Learning - Prospective Students

(Links to the information in bold are available via the DLC home page.)

Go to the DLC homepage for a list of courses and technologies and select the course you would like to enroll in. You can also go to the De Anza College Schedule of Classes, select the quarter you want to take the classes in, the click "Distance Learning" as the search criteria to see all the online course offerings for that quarter.

If you are considering taking an online class and are not sure whether it's a good fit for you, take this short quiz to see "Are Distance Learning Courses for You?"

In order to be successful in an online courses, not only do you have to have basic technology skills and resources, you also need to have some understanding about online courses and be prepared to learn in a different way. We have listed some questions that frequently come up for first time online students. Feel free to use them to get some basic ideas.

Some courses require students to come to campus for meetings. Look for the "distance" icon Icon indicating a Distance Learning site on the DLC Class Schedule for classes that:

...do not require you to come to campus, or
...offer alternatives to on-campus proctored exams for students who do not live close to campus.
