Getting Started: How to Enroll


Apply for Admission

We have open admission, which means if you're a high school graduate or non-graduate age 18 or older, you're in!

Get your first year of college free!

Did you know?  As a first-time, full-time student (12 units or more), you are eligible to have the cost of tuition and fees waived for your first year at Foothill College if you meet requirements. Check out Foothill College Promise


The first step for all new students — regardless of your academic goal — is to apply for admission to Foothill College, with two exceptions.

  1. International Students Applying for F1 Visa or Transferring F1:  Visit the International Student Program for how to apply.
  2. Students interested in the Apprenticeship Program: See how to apply for a trade apprenticeship.

Please allow up to 48 hours to receive your Student CWID for access to MyPortal registration and most Student Services, including Counseling appointments.
