Mission Statement

The mission of the De Anza Transfer Center is to promote the attainment of educational goals and facilitate student transfer. The Transfer Center provides services and resources to De Anza students, faculty, and support services through the development of transfer agreements and partnerships with select 4-year schools, general transfer counseling, and resource materials. 

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 by using the following options.
