Welcome to the Foothill College Online Application

  • Spring 2017 - Available now
  • Summer 2017 - Available now
  • Fall 2017 - Apply starting May 1

We are pleased that you have chosen to apply for admission to Foothill College, one of California’s premiere community colleges.

As of Fall 2014, Foothill College is using OpenCCC, a statewide application system sponsored by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office.  Accounts from the previous application system are not available and you will need to create a new account if you have not already done so. If you do not remember or are not sure if you have already created an account, click on the 'Apply' link below, then click on the 'Sign In' link, and the 'I forgot my username' link.

Prior to registering, you will need to submit a new admission application if:

  • You have never attended Foothill College.
  • You are a former Foothill College student, but skipped either the Fall/Winter/Spring terms.
  • You submitted a Foothill College admissions application but did not register for classes.
  • You registered for classes at Foothill College but dropped them prior to the refund deadline.

After you submit the online application:

  • Print the confirmation page.
  • CHECK YOUR EMAIL (including your spam folder). Within 2-3 business days, you should receive an email containing your Foothill College Student ID number and other important enrollment information from Foothill College.
  • Once you receive your Student ID number, go to MyPortal and log in for the most current information regarding your enrollment status at Foothill College.
  • Note: If you have not received the "Welcome Foothill College" email, it may have gone to your email account's spam folder. Please also ensure that you fully submitted the application. After "Creating an Account" with OpenCCC, you will need to log into that account to "Start a New Application." After submitting the application, you will be taken to a Confirmation Page, which provides a Confirmation Number. If you still do not receive an email response, please contact the Admissions & Records Office at (650) 949-7325.

We look forward to seeing you at Foothill!
