Founded in 1967, De Anza College is a two-year community college that resides in the city of Cupertino, California. It was named after Juan Bautista de Anza, the former Governor of New Mexico and a Novo-Spanish explorer from Spain.

A large number of De Anza graduates go on to attend local four-year colleges and universities in the region, including California State University and University of California. In fact, a larger percentage of De Anza’s students consistently transfer to California State University and University of California than from any other community college in California.
