We would like to be the first to welcome you to Foothill College and the International Programs Office!

The International Programs office is dedicated to:

  • Helping international students adjust to our campus and community by giving you a safe home away from home.
  • Offering international students on F-1 visas with regular advising, orientation sessions, information updates and seminars regarding all regulations that may affect their stay in the United States. We are here to answer your questions about passports, visas, insurance, employment, travel, and academic issues.
  • Organizing cultural activities that provide international students with opportunities to expand your horizons and discover the world, share your unique heritage and cultural background with others, get involved, make life-long friends, volunteer and make a difference, and above all, enjoy your experience at Foothill College!

We hope that the time you spend with us will inspire you to achieve your educational and personal goals. You are welcome here and we value your contributions to our community!

Warm regards,
The Staff at the International Programs Office, Foothill College
