Steps to Enroll
Apply for Admission
Meet Assessment Requirements
- Effective Fall 2018, Foothill reviews high school transcripts as the primary mode for Assessment.
- If high school transcripts are unavilable, students will assess with the standard Assessment Exam.
- For further details, please visit the Assessment Center
- If you've already completed some credit coursework at another college or university—and even if you are looking to only attend Foothill for a summer course, submit a Prerequisite Clearance form to Admissions and Records.
If you are new to college, you have two options to meet this requirement.
Create an *Educational Plan
*In order to fulfill this requirement, your student education plan (SEP) must include the term in which you plan to register.
Register for Classes
Once you've completed these steps, you will get priority enrollment to register for classes.
Pay for Classes
Pay your fees as soon as possible after registering. If you need help paying for college, we offer financial aid options and payment plans. Remember that you may be dropped from your classes if you do not pay in a timely manner.
