How to Use the Online Class Schedule
You can find the online class
schedule under course information on
De Anza's Homepage.
You can search by department (math, speech, history etc.).
You can search for courses that are open and are not full.
You can even do advanced searches including:
- morning, afternoon or evening
- by instructor
- day of week
- course type (distance learning, off campus, Learning Communities)
Once you select a course
then you will learn more about the course including:
- Course number (ex: HUMA 10): Courses numbered 1-49 transfer to the
UC; courses numbered 1-99 transfer to the CSU.
- The course title (ex: Human Sexuality)
- The unit value: most classes at De Anza are four units, but classes
can range from one-half unit to 10 units in value.
- A description of the prerequisites and advisories associated with a
given course. Prerequisites are either enforced during the registration
process or not. Classes that are enforced include all EWRT, ESL, Math
(except MATH 210), CHEM 1A, BIOL 6A & 40A. Advisories are course
- The CRN number: the five digit number that is used for
registration purposes. Each class offering has its own CRN number. A
course with more than two class offerings will have a different call
number for each class section.
- The course I.D. contains the course number and section number.
Section numbers 60 and above designate evening classes. A section number
with a Z (COUN100.62Z) implies a Distance Learning course. A
section number with a D (EWRT001A.31D) implies a course that is
part of a learning community and requires enrollment into another course
that is linked to that course.
- The time and days of the week the class meets. TBA means to be
announced and is often used for distance learning classes. S indicates
Saturday; R represents Thursdays.
- The instructor who teaches each section. Staff is a generic term
that no instructor has yet been assigned to teach this course. An
instructor will be assigned prior to the beginning of the quarter.
