Get Your Date to Register for Classes

Frequently Asked Questions

When can I view my date to register?

Your date and time to register for classes is

available in MyPortal a few weeks before the registration period begins for the upcoming term.


The Registration Status screen in MyPortal will display the earliest time and date that you can register for classes at the campus (De Anza or Foothill) to which you are admitted.


What determines my date to register?
  • Your student status at De Anza: new, continuing or former, and full-time or part-time student
  • Your association with a priority group identified by the State Chancellor's office
  • Your completion of steps for priority enrollment
  • Total number of units completed at De Anza
  • Your date to register will improve as you earn more units and maintain your continuing full-time (12+ units) status, except
  • Once you earn 150 units minus Basic Skills (non-degree applicable) units, your date to register will drop to the bottom to of the continuing registration dates per new state regulations.
What if I am already a student at Foothill College?

If you attended both De Anza and Foothill colleges in the past, current enrollment at one campus does not automatically allow registration at the other. You must apply to each campus and be admitted in order to register for classes.

Register as soon as you can!
Register for classes as soon as the system allows for the best chance of getting into the classes that you need. Follow steps for how to register for classes.
