Extended Deadlines for Pass/No Pass, Excused Withdrawals

The deadlines for requesting Pass/No Pass or an Excused Withdrawal have been extended, in consideration of the disruptions caused by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

  • Pass/No Pass: You can request Pass/No Pass for classes taken in the 2021 spring quarter or retroactively for classes taken in winter 2021 or winter, spring, summer or fall of 2020. The deadline for these requests is Dec. 31, 2021.
  • Excused Withdrawals: You can request an Excused Withdrawal for classes taken in the 2021 spring quarter up to the last day of the quarter, which is June 25. (Requests for excused withdrawals for past quarters will not be considered without documentation of extenuating circumstances.)

Before choosing Pass/No Pass, you should know that some transfer universities may not accept Pass grades for certain requirements. To learn more about these important considerations and how to submit a request, visit our Special Rules for Pass/No Pass and Excused Withdrawals webpage.

Graduation Will Be Online in 2021

De Anza's graduation celebration will be held online for 2021, as it was last year, because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Be sure to check for updates and information about how you can participate at deanza.edu/graduation

Grade Policy for COVID-19

In consideration of the disruptions caused by COVID-19, the college adopted a temporary policy for grades earned in the winter, spring, summer and fall of 2020:

  • A grade of F earned for any 2020 term will not be counted in calculating earned units or Grade Point Averages.
  • Grades of D-plus, D and D-minus earned for any 2020 term will not be counted in calculating Grade Point Averages.

The college had planned to extend this policy for winter 2021, based on guidance from the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office. However, because other colleges and universities have applied different policies, De Anza College has decided to resume counting D and F grades for winter 2021 and future quarters. If you believe this will create a significant hardship for you, please contact the Admissions and Records Office for assistance. (Updated March 25, 2021)
