Foothill Moves to Virtual Instruction; Campus is Open for Services

March 13

This message is to update you on the move to a  virtual campus as of Monday, March 16. We will continue to send emails and post to our website and social media as the situation develops. 

Foothill College is not closing. We will still be providing the same services, but hours and delivery methods may change. Beginning Monday, most classes, with limited exceptions, will be delivered virtually. 

Please note that there will be no face-to-face final exams. Contact the appropriate division dean if you have questions.

Registration is open  and you are able to sign up for your spring classes. The college will return to face-to-face instruction as soon as possible.  Unless you register for a 100% online course, you should be ready to return to campus when the situation improves.   

International Students:  Courses that would have been regularly held in person will be held using virtual methods for the foreseeable future. During this time, these courses will be considered as hybrid courses for immigration purposes, which is allowable per federal regulations. The  International Student Office will continue to communicate with you directly. 

Food Pantry:  The  Food Pantry has moved to  Room 2150A  (across from the Bookstore). You will still be able to pick up your pre-packaged food orders. 

Counseling and Psychological Services: Academic and mental health counseling appointments  will be available online or by phone. 

Library Hours:   The library will be open next week and into the spring  for internet and computer access. If you do not have access to either and cannot come to the library, please contact  marketing@fhda.edu


Admissions & Records and Financial Aid:  Both offices  will be open. Call or email to make a virtual appointment. 

Disability Resource Center:  The  Disability Resource Center  and  Veterans Resource Center  will remain open. Most accommodated testing will move online unless the  DRC Dean  grants permission.

Health Center:  If you are ill, please set up an appointment virtually

Foothill College is recognized as the #1 online college in the state and our experienced faculty and staff are committed to supporting you. We have planned so that students will be able to complete course work in the spring.  Students planning to transfer and complete their certificates and degrees will be able to do so. 

The college really appreciates the voices of our students, especially the efforts of our ASFC government leadership. These students have helped the college with advice and their constructive and productive feedback has been invaluable. They truly exemplify the values we associate with service leadership.

Although you will be learning virtually, please follow  CDC health protocols  and look after yourselves. The college will be in touch on a regular basis to update you on news as and when it becomes available.

See you all ‘virtually!’
