Featured Open Fall Courses
Foothill College Fall Quarter Starts Sept. 20
While most Fall 2021 classes will be delivered virtually — using Zoom, Canvas, and other online tools, we're offering a lot in person! Check out the list below.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Your fall classes in Canvas will NOT display on your Canvas Dashboard until the first day of fall quarter.
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 fall classes. You can find faculty contact information through our searchable online directory.
