Certificate of Achievement-Advanced
This Certificate of Achievement-Advanced is designed for students planning to transfer to the California State University (CSU). It offers a program of study that meets the CSU lower division General Education requirements. Though completion of lower division General Education is not usually required
to transfer, and not recommended for certain majors, most students should make completion of all or most of CSU GE requirements a priority, along with completion of their lower- division major coursework. Students are advised to meet with a counselor or academic adviser to discuss transfer requirements, including General Education, lower division major preparation, minimum and competitive GPAs, and the transfer admission process.
To earn this advanced certificate, students must meet all CSU GE Breadth requirements found at requirements. Courses on this advanced certificate are approved for a specific academic year, so requirements listed in catalogs for other years do not apply. Courses must be on the approved list during the year in which they were taken. For approved courses by academic year, see This advanced certificate will be noted on the student’s transcript.
Important: The Certificate of Achievement-Advanced differs
from the CSU GE "certification form" required by most CSU campuses to verify completion of lower division General Education work. Not all criteria required for the advanced certificate applies to the CSU GE "certification." Upon enrolling in final course requirements and receiving conditional admission to the university, students must submit a request for certification to the De Anza College Admissions and Records Office. CSU GE certification request forms are available at the Admissions and Records Office and online at
