You are responsible for taking all assigned final examinations. Your instructor will provide details on the final exam in your class. Final examinations are given in all Foothill courses, and will normally not be given in advance of the scheduled exam time. Review the final exam schedule and plan accordingly.
Final grades are submitted by faculty the week after final exams. Final grades are then available to view via your MyPortal.fhda.edu account, as well as posted to your transcript approximately three weeks after the last day of final examinations.
Be aware that several "roll up" steps must occur before final grades and calculation of GPAs are available for you to view via your MyPortal.fhda.edu account. Once the "roll up" process is complete, you may log in to MyPortal.fhda.edu to view grades via the View Grades and Unofficial Transcript links on the MyPortal Students tab.

Foothill College and De Anza College have implemented an emergency notification system (ENS) that rapidly sends voice, e-mail and text* messages to all faculty, staff and students. In the event of an emergency, including a power outage, campus closure or other urgent situation, Foothill-De Anza officials use the ENS service to provide emergency details and information on the appropriate response to all students and employees. The Foothill-De Anza ENS service will not be used for any purposes other than FHDA emergency communications and system testing.
Emergency messages will be sent via e-mail and to all phone numbers that you have signed up for the free ENS service, and can include your work, home, cell and text.
To add or update your contact information for the free ENS service, access your MyPortal.fhda.edu account and follow the instructions listed in the Set Up Emergency Notification section. The contact information used by the ENS service is drawn from the Foothill-De Anza employment database as well as data provided by students who have enrolled at Foothill-De Anza.
Be aware that mobile phone carriers require recipients of text messages to opt in to the Foothill-De Anza ENS service via their mobile phones. *Your mobile phone carrier may assess charges for receiving text messages, and you are responsible for paying them. Contact your carrier for more information.
