Transfer Students

We understand there are two types of transfer students: those transferring to Foothill from another college or university, and students planning to transfer to a 4-year university. Sometimes you may be both!

If you've already completed some credit coursework at another university, and even if you are looking to only attend Foothill for a summer course, follow these steps.

  1. Apply for Admission
  2. Meet Assessment Requirements
    • If you plan to earn a degree or certificate from Foothill, you'll want to complete steps for Priority Enrollment to make sure you always get your earliest date for registration each quarter.
  3. See a Counselor
    • After you apply for admission and receive your Foothill College student ID, you can make an appointment to see a counselor. 
    • If you are new to college and transferring to a 4-year university is your goal, we encourage you to sign up for a SOAR workshop to attend an orientation to college.
    • If you are only taking one class but have questions, our counselors offer several ways to meet with them to determine you educational goals.
  4. Register for classes
  5. 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
