Financial aid is available through the college for students who need financial support to pursue their education. The college provides assistance in the form of grants, scholarships, loans and part-time jobs, as well as the De Anza College Promise program. Except for scholarships and the De Anza College Promise, all programs require that a student show financial need in order to qualify.
Most students should use the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available at Carefully follow the directions provided. Undocumented students should use the California Dream Act application available at, instead of the FAFSA. Applications for each new academic year are available on Oct. 1. Application deadlines vary for different programs, but you must file the FAFSA or CADAA by March 2 to be considered for a Cal Grant. Students are encouraged to call or visit the Financial Aid office for more information and to check the website frequently for updates.
Ability-to-benefit options for establishing general student eligibility for federal student aid have been eliminated for students who first enroll in a program of study on or after July 1, 2012.

The Guided Pathways initiative helps provide students with clear paths to achieve their academic goals. Students can explore areas of academic interest through six Villages, each based on a “meta-major” or cluster of related subjects.
Guided Pathways Villages are supportive communities of students, faculty members and classified professionals with shared academic interests. Each Village offers workshops, events and other activities keyed to the Village’s subject areas. Villages are also centers for sharing relevant information and services, including program maps that provide a suggested plan for advancing through required courses – quarter by quarter – to obtain a desired degree, certificate or transfer in a particular major.
Through these Villages and program maps, the Guided Pathways project creates opportunities for students to explore majors and careers – while receiving support services that will assist them in achieving their goals in a timely manner.
Student Health Services provides a variety of confidential, free and low-cost services. Free services include first aid, blood pressure checks, TB testing, flu shots, over-the-counter medicines, smoking cessation, pregnancy tests, condoms and health education information. Short-term psychological and personal counseling services are also provided free of charge. Services at reduced cost include well- woman exams, physical exams, birth control, emergency contraception and immunizations.
