The International Programs office is dedicated to:
  • Helping international students adjust to our campus and community by providing a home away from home.
  • Assisting non-immigrant international students on F-1 visas to abide by immigration laws by providing regular advising, orientation sessions, information updates and seminars regarding all regulations that may affect their stay in the United States. We are here to answer your questions about passports, visas, insurance, employment, travel and academic issues.
  • Creating programs and initiatives that will help you better understand yourselves as part of a community, a country, and a world.
  • Organizing cultural activities that provide international students with opportunities to expand your horizons and discover the world, share your unique heritage and cultural background with others, get involved, volunteer and make a difference, and above all, enjoy your experience at Foothill College!
We hope that the time you spend with us will inspire you to achieve your educational and personal goals!
Warm regards,
George Beers, Dean of International Education
And the entire staff of the International Programs Office
