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.

You can speak with a counselor or academic adviser by using the following options.

Appointments (In person and Zoom)

You can use our online scheduling tool to make an appointment for a counseling session.

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

You may also visit General Counseling and Academic Awareness and De Anza CONNECT Programs for available appointments.


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.  

Drop-in sessions are hosted by counselors and academic advisers. Counselors can assist with all topics. Academic advisers can assist with all topics except:

  • Academic Renewal Questions
  • TAA/TAG Information

Click the button to join a drop -session. You will be asked to log in with 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 and has reached its capacity of students during that time. Please check back later during the posted drop-in hours, or visit General Counseling and  Academic Awareness and De Anza CONNECT Programs for their drop-in hours.
