Tools to have in your back pocket

August 23, 2018

Foothill students always have support


Welcome to Foothill College. You’re an Owl now, and that means you have support each step of your journey, whether you’re a first-time student, returning student or looking to advance your professional career.

 Here is a list of a few of the resources Foothill offers all of its students. Think of them as tools you can use any time.

  1. Counseling

Foothill offers academic, career and personal counseling. You can develop an educational plan, learn about courses to advance your career and find referrals to campus and community resources.

  1. Health Center

The Student Health Center provides free and low-cost medical services. Students taking classes at the Sunnyvale Center have access to the services available at the Foothill main campus and Instant Urgent Care Clinic in Santa Clara. 

  1. Food Pantry

Studies show students don’t do well in school when they lack the proper nutrition. Fuel your day for success by visiting the Foothill College Food Pantry. The pantry provides nutritious food from Whole Foods for students who are experiencing food insecurity.

  1. Library

The Hubert H. Semans Library has all your researching needs. You have access to scholarly journals, articles and databases on and off campus. Not to mention you can book a study room if you need a quiet space to complete assignments or study for finals.

  1. Disability Resource Center

At Foothill you will always have the support you need to succeed. The DRC provides alternative media services, a computer access center, deaf and hearing-impaired services, learning disability services and much more.

  1. Financial Aid 

Don’t let money scare you. Foothill provides fee waivers, scholarships, financial aid and student work programs. Every year, we give more than $400,000 in scholarships and more than 25% of Foothill students receive some form of financial aid to help offset the cost of college.


It’s not too late to get the Foothill experience. You can still apply for our 2018 Fall Quarter. Classes begin on Sept. 24.
