Here's What We Do

The Transfer Center helps students research their options and make plans for a smooth transition to a four-year university or other institution.

While you won't be able to visit us in person during the 2021 summer session, you can still speak with a counselor or academic adviser by using the following options.

Appointments (Via Zoom)

De Anza College is currently operating remotely to help reduce the risk of COVID-19. Students can still schedule a Zoom counseling appointment.

If there are no appointments available, please check back, as new appointment times will become available every day.

Drop-in Sessions (via Zoom) 

Drop-in sessions are only 10-15 minutes and are meant for quick questions regarding academic, career, and transfer counseling and advising. These sessions are not meant for completing a comprehensive educational plan, personal counseling or financial aid extension.  

Students will meet with a Counselor or Academic Adviser during their drop-in session. Counselors can assist with all reason selections but may not be available during your drop-in time. However, Academic Advisers can assist you except for the following reasons:  

  • Academic Renewal Questions
  • Career Counseling
  • Crisis Counseling
  • Exceeding Maximum Units

Click the burgundy button to sign-up for Drop-in session using your student ID (also known as Campuswide ID, or CWID) and date of birth (MMDDYYYY)

Note: If the Drop-In option is greyed out, there is no availability during that time. Please check back later during the posted drop-in hours. 

Summer Virtual Drop-in hours: 
Monday & Tuesday: 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Wednesday & Thursday: 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.


Online Adviser

Use our Online Adviser program for quick questions. Counselors and academic advisers from the De Anza Counseling Center will respond to your questions through the Online Adviser system. Questions should be brief and relate to general academic issues only.
