F-1 Admitted Student Checklist
Congratulations on your admission to Foothill College!
Below is a checklist to use as guidance.
|1||Register for orientation through the online application student status page.|
Pay for the SEVIS fee at https://www.fmjfee.com/
Apply for the F-1 Visa. Visit this website for information https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/study/student-visa.html
Schedule your F-1 visa interview with the U.S. embassy. To locate a U.S. embassy near you, please visit https://www.usembassy.gov/
|5||Contact ISP Homestays to arrange housing or begin searching for an apartment. We do not have on-campus housing.|
Purchase a plane ticket to San Francisco (SFO) or San Jose (SJC) airport. Try to arrive a few days before the mandatory orientation date in order to rest and recover from jet lag before the busy orientation schedule.
You can arrange for airport pick-up service through ISP Homestays or you can take a taxi or a shuttle bus to your destination. Ride shares (Uber, Lyft) are also available at both airports.
Attend mandatory orientation which includes placement process, immigration, registration for classes, academic counseling, and other events designed to acclimate new students.
|9||Like us on Facebook to meet new and current students and to receive updates about orientation, campus activities, on-campus jobs and much more!|
