We’re here to help you achieve your educational goals.

While you won't be able to visit us in person during the 2020 summer session, you can still speak with a counselor or academic adviser by phone, email or Zoom video, or through our Online Adviser program.

  • Use our Online Adviser program for quick questions
  • Use our online appointment system to schedule an appointment with a counselor or academic adviser by phone or Zoom video. Please note: If there are no appointments available, please check back as new appointments become available every day or call 408-864-5400.

You must provide your eight-digit student identification number, also known as a campuswide ID or CWID.

NEW: 15-Minute Drop-In Sessions

If you're a current or returning student, you can have a quick online chat with an academic adviser – without an appointment – during our summer drop-in hours. 

(Drop-in sessions are not meant for personal or career counseling, completing an educational plan or discussions that require accessing your student records.)

Click the red links to enter the Zoom waiting room, or call 669.900.6833 during the listed times.

Our counselors and academic advisers can help students with planning to earn career certificates or associate degrees, transfer to a four-year university, or reach other goals.

New Students

  • Students in their first or second quarters at De Anza (and future students who haven't enrolled yet) should visit the Office of Outreach for academic counseling, information and assistance. 
  • We recommend completing  orientation before you see a counselor. Orientation is a required step to qualify for priority enrollment – and it will answer many of your initial questions about classes, registration and related topics.
