Noncredit Courses
Noncredit courses are not recorded on a student’s transcript and grades are not calculated in a student’s GPA. Students in these courses may receive letter grades or be graded on the basis of Pass/No Pass or satisfactory progress. See course description for more information.
An application for graduation must be completed and submitted to the Admissions Office prior to receiving a degree or certificate. Students should regularly perform a degree audit through Degree Works (see page 11) to monitor academic progress in reaching educational goals and meeting graduation requirements. In the quarter preceding the quarter in which a student plans to graduate, a detailed review and comparison of completed coursework should be done. This will allow time to make any necessary schedule changes. Students may seek assistance from a counselor/adviser as needed.
Degrees are awarded at the end of all terms.
Students who have achieved a cumulative De Anza College GPA between 3.30
and 4.0 will be awarded associate degree honors at graduation, as follows.
4.00: Highest Honors, Summa Cum Laude 3.50-3.99: High Honors, Magna Cum Laude 3.30-3.49: Honors, Cum Laude

De Anza College shall take all steps necessary to provide a positive educational and employment environment that encourages equal educational opportunities. The college will actively seek to educate staff and students
on the deleterious effects of expressions of hatred or contempt based on race, color, national or ethnic origin, age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, or physical or psychological disability; and will promote equality and mutual respect and understanding among all groups and individuals.
De Anza College will not tolerate behavior that infringes on the safety of any student. A student shall not intimidate, harass another student through words or actions. Such behavior includes direct physical contact, such as hitting or shoving; verbal assaults, such as teasing or name- calling; social isolation or manipulation; and cyberbullying by any means including email, text and social networks or media.
De Anza offers certain courses on a noncredit basis. Noncredit classes do not count toward a degree or academic certificate, and students do not earn college credit units. However, students can earn a noncredit certificate after completing a series of required classes.
Noncredit courses are intended for students who want to gain general knowledge or expand their knowledge on a particular topic, learn new skills or upgrade existing skills, or prepare for taking credit courses. They can be a starting point for many individuals on a pathway to learning basic skills, preparing to enter the workforce or transitioning to for-credit programs.
For more information, see the section on Noncredit Courses beginning on page 38.
