Registration and Fees for Online Courses
The registration process for online classes is the same as that for "traditional" classes. You must apply for admission, take a placement test, if needed, and then register for classes. You will need to know your Student ID. To find out your ID, follow these instructions.
Late Registration and Add Codes
If the course you are interested in is closed, you can request an Add Code for late registration starting on the first day of classes. Preview the instructor's Course Information for prerequisites, required meetings, etc. before you request to add late.
You can add courses via MyPortal during the first two weeks of the quarter.
Foothill College has a new wait-list system. You will no longer be automatically moved from wait-listed status to enrolled status. Here is a brief explanation of the process:
All students use myportal.fhda.edu to register for classes and update your contact information. All you'll need to know is your Collegewide ID or CWID and you are in! You'll use a temporary password to log in the first time. To be prepared, see the First-time Login Guide available on the MyPortal for more information.Students who do not have access to the Internet may update their mailing and e-mail addresses at the Admissions and Records office or the Media Center.
If you receive the error message that it is "not your day to register" when attempting to complete the late-registration process to add a course, it may mean that you have not yet submitted an application for the quarter. If you did not take classes the previous quarter, you are not considered a "continuing student." Before you can add a course to your schedule, you must apply to the college by completing the online application.
See Dates and Deadlines.
