Current International Students at Foothill College

The International Student Office (ISO) at Foothill provides services and advising for more than 700 international students on F-1 visas.
This section is designed exclusively for our current international students. It includes an overview of the most important immigration regulations affecting F-1 students in the U.S. in the areas of academics, employment, travel, medical insurance, school transfer, driving, and maintenance of valid student status.
Our immigration and academic advisors as well as other staff at the ISO are always available for consultation, advice and assistance. However, we encourage you to research your topic of interest on the Web site first, especially when planning time-critical matters, such as OPT application, re-entry signature on your I-20, school transfer, etc.
If you do not find any information related to your specific circumstances, please visit the International Student Office in Room 1933, located in the Administration Building near the Campus Center.
