Admission Requirements - Private/Out-of-State Colleges & Universities

Admissions requirements at private (also referred to as "independent") and out-state (OOS) colleges/universities vary from institution to institution and by major. Each private and OOS college and university sets their own transfer admission requirements. Factors such as unique talents and the academic potential of every individual applicant may be taken into consideration as part of their admission selection processes.

Information on California private colleges/universities can be found on the Association of Independent California Colleges & Universities (AICCU) Member Colleges website. The AICCU represents nearly 80 private, nonprofit colleges and universities located throughout the state.  Students who are considering transfer to a California private institution may also use the college and major exploration tools available on the website to research individual campuses and programs of study.

To learn about eligibility requirements for specific private and OOS institutions, be sure to visit their individual Admissions Office websites.


Disclaimer:  The final responsibility for successful transfer rests with the student.  The information posted on the De Anza College Transfer Planning Web site is designed to assist you in obtaining the most accurate information possible.  However, this information is subject to change without notice, which may subsequently impact your admission to the University. 

Students are encouraged to meet as early as possible and periodically with a counselor or academic advisor both at De Anza College and at the transfer institution to confirm your choice of classes and to develop an education plan for transfer.
