Information For Non F-1 Visa Holders, Permanent Residents, Overseas US or Dual Citizens
When Are You Considered An International Student?
The International Student Office is dedicated to supporting international students on F-1 visas. For application purposes, international students at Foothill College are defined as students who hold or will apply for an F-1 student visa.
You are considered a non F-1 visa international student if you:
- Are permanent resident (holding a green card)
- Are a U.S. citizen or a dual citizen
- Hold a visa other than F-1 (and you are not planning to change your status to F-1)
To apply to Foothill College, please visit our college Admissions & Records to complete OpenCCC, a statewide application system sponsored by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office.
Do NOT apply through the International Student Office.
Our Community Ambassador Program office organizes new student information sessions for overseas U.S. Citizens, permanent residents and non-F-1 visa holders.
For residency determination, please contact Ouida Mathis at 650.949.7517 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Admissions Procedure for Non F-1 Students
Follow the enrollment steps for online application in Admission & Records. This includes information on application deadlines, tuition and fees, and important registration information. Please note that once your application is complete, you will receive an e-mail correspondence from our local Admissions & Records office, not from the International Students office.
SAT, ACT and AP (Advanced Placement) courses are not required for admission.
If you completed a 13th year, AP courses or an IB program in an overseas high school, the determination of advanced credit will be done on a case-by-case basis during your private appointment with an academic counselor. You should bring with you additional documentation such as official transcripts, exam results, course catalog if available, etc. If you are interested in receiving credit for courses you have taken in a college or a university overseas, visit the Foreign Transcripts section.
