Featured Spring Courses
Foothill College Virtual Campus Classes Start April 5.
Most Spring 2021 classes will be delivered virtually — using Zoom, Canvas, and other online tools.
Note: some classes will be taught at the regular times listed in the schedule (synchronously). Classes designated as 'Online' will typically allow for much more flexibility, and some classes will combine both approaches.
Contact your instructor if you have any questions about the method of delivery for your winter classes. You can find faculty contact information through our searchable online directory.
