Conditional Admission

Foothill College has agreements with various language schools such as ELS, Education First, Kaplan and others. Students who are interested in attending Foothill College but did not meet the English proficiency score can choose to attend one of our partner English language schools.

Students who attend a partner language school will receive a Conditional Letter of Admission.  Once the proper level is achieved, the student can transfer to Foothill College and receive full admission.
