Online Advising Forums are moderated by Jerry Cellilo, Fatima Jinnah, and Isaac Escoto


If you can't make it to campus to see a counselor, the online advising forums may be a great alternative for you!

The Forums are publicly viewable and several people may be reviewing responses. Do NOT post your SSN, phone number, or personal information. If you have personal or private questions, meet with a Foothill counselor in person or over a phone conversation You can make an appointment via the Online Appointment link. Thank you.

BEFORE you post a question:

  1. View the Frequently Asked Questions for questions and answers most students have asked.
  2. Read the Counseling webpage for additional counseling help
  3. Search the forums - as 80% likely that your question has already been asked and answered.
  • Note the different forums and choose what you feel is the best one for your question (we check all forums).
  • Do not duplicate the same question in different forums (we check all the forums).
  • You are welcome to join in an existing question thread and add a posting.


AFTER you post a question:

  • Go back in 48 hours and check the reply. If you are not satisfied with the answer or need more information post a follow up question using the same thread.
  • Other counselors and students will also post answers to your questions.
  • Check back more than once in case a counselor (Jerry, Fatima or Isaac) has added any additional information.
