Frequently Asked Questions

. What are the odds that I will get the classes that I want each quarter?
A . Excellent. There is no guarantee, but you will have priority registration each quarter.

Q May I apply to a four-year university without penalty and as an incoming freshman student?
A . Yes. Your college admissions process will be the same as other FUHSD seniors.

Q . Will I earn college and high school credits?
A . No. All De Anza College courses will appear on your De Anza transcript for college credit. FUHSD student athletes will have their De Anza College classes listed on their FUHSD transcript for their sport season only.

Q. May I graduate early?

A. No. COLLEGE NOW is a program and you may only graduate early from a high school campus.

Q . May I participate in high school graduation and senior end-of-the-year activities?
A . Yes. You may participate in graduation and all other senior end-of-the-year activities that do not conflict with COLLEGE NOW.

Q May I continue in sports at the high school level or on a De Anza College athletic team?
A . Yes for high school; No for De Anza. COLLEGE NOW students are NOW able to participate in sports at the high school level, not the De Anza College athletic teams.

Q May I still participate or hold an office in clubs/activities at my high school?
A . Yes. You may NOW be a member or have a leadership position on a high school club/activity; you will be allowed on the high school campus for lunch time meetings, but NO HANGING OUT WITH FRIENDS.

Q. May I be considered for “senior awards” given out by my high school at the end of the senior year?
A. Yes. You are NOW eligible for senior awards.
