Course numbering Courses numbered #1-99 are transferable to CSU (ex. ICS 7, EWRT 1A) Courses numbered #1-49 are transferable to UC Recommend using courses numbered #1-49 for private & out of state
Course Lettering The letter following the number in a course means it’s part of a sequence (ex. ARTS 2A,2B,2C). You may or may not be able to take courses out of sequence. Special Topic courses include X=1, Y=2, Z=3 units (ex. COUN80X = 2 units) Z refers to Distance Education courses (ex. COUN100.64Z is taught online)
Non-Transferable Courses Any courses numbered above # 99 Example: EWRT , READ 200, 211, ESL 251,252,253, MATH 210,212,114 You may choose to take them for P/NP instead of a letter grade You need to request to take them for P/NP to avoid compromising your overall GPA Courses numbered 200 and above are non degree applicable (ex. Math 212, ESL 200)
Transfer Admission Agreement (TAA) Several universities offer De Anza students guaranteed admission to the campus & major of their choice TAA is by contract to complete course requirements & GPA Only 1 TAA UC: UCI, UCD, UCSC, UCM, UCR, UCSB PRIVATE: Arizona State University, Cogswell Polytechnical College, UOP
