is it possible to be an AVID tutor at my high school while taking classes at foothill?
Erin Gobry
23:30
ok thank you!
Elnekave, Yamm, 10

Looking at the classes in foothill, most of them have many prerequisites. Where can we see what classes we can take with our highschool experience.

Diana Suvorova
26:07
How is Middle College different from College Now?
kristinas phone
26:58
Got it, thank you.
Jennifer
27:13
How hard is it to get the classes you want?
Cathy Su
27:50
can you explain how you choose classes and how you'd meet the graduation requirements. For instance, do you need to choose an English class every quarter?
kristinas phone
27:53
Can you choose to be fully online next year, similar to the option B at LAHS/MVLA?
Diana Suvorova
29:55
Thank you!
Liz Price

When will students find out if they have been admitted to College Now?
Simon Pennington
34:03
@Kristinas: We will be mostly online in fall and winter. If you wanted to just be an online student, you would have no problem. We normally have hundreds of online classes (even before COVID), so anyone who just wants to be online will be fine. We offer 40 online degrees too!!
Jyoti
38:32
DO you have some historical data to share for % of students transferred into UCs, in computer science? college
Nikhila
39:56
Will the high school transcript still be available via Aeries? If so, how often does it get updated in Aeries?
Simon Pennington
42:01
@Jyoti: It really varies from school to school as some CUs are harder to get into than others. It also varies from year to year…what we can say is that you have a better chance getting into a UC (especially UCLA and Berkeley) as a Foothill transfer student (if you stay a year after his school) than you do as a traditional high school student. Our Honors students who entered into a TAP with UCLA had an 84% acceptance rate in 2019.
Diana Suvorova
45:03
If we go ahead and decide to do Middle College, but after a year would like to transfer to College Now, could you do that no problem? Or visa virsa
Cathy Su
48:00
Do you need to take classes summer Q to meet graduation requirements?
Nikhila
48:49
Is there a minimum credits/quarter students have to take?
Leeza Pushnof
49:41
If I apply this march will I be able to take a foothill class this summer with the college now program?
Dan Rubinstein
50:28
According to the website applications are due at March 31st, but Mr. McHenry has been saying April 31st. Which is it?
Nancy
50:50
How to fulfill PE credit at foothill?
Vera

Can we cover other dual registration programs?
Elnekave, Yamm, 10
53:28
could you please repeat how many classes we can take per quarter and year?
Avivit K
53:30
what is counseling 5 that you mentioned?
Nancy
54:25
Can we take more than 15 units per quarter?
Grace
55:05
Do you provide college counseling to seniors?
Vera
55:50
Thank you! Super helpful.
Jyoti
56:47
Is counselor approval must for dual enrollment courses, even if you don't want to transfer credit to high school transcript?
Diana Suvorova
57:19
So we have to take a minimum of 20 units per quarter and once we take 15 units, we pay for the other 5?
Diana Suvorova
59:34
Thank you that is so helpful!!
Diana Suvorova
01:05:38
Other than the fact that we would be paying fees if we take more than 15 college units, what else would we have to pay for if we choose to do Middle College or College Now?
Cathy Su
01:06:16
are any classes in-person in fallQ? for instance, labs.
Nikhila
01:07:21
MVLA requires a 5 credits in Health. Students typically take that from the Adult education center over summer. Would College Now students do that or is there an equivalent at foothill ?
Josh Pelletier (Foothill College)
01:08:31
Either is available … Hlth 21 at FH or MVLA Adult Ed Health class
Jennifer
01:10:32
Is there a chance that there will be a greater offering of in person classes ?
Jennifer
01:10:50
yes
Erin Gobry
01:12:22
for the application process do we need letters of recommendations from our school counselors and teachers or can we ask an outside academic counselor or teacher/ mentor?
Leeza Pushnof
01:13:01
Can we get letters of rec from teachers we had in previous years?
Jennifer
01:13:02
Thank you
Cathy Su
01:13:08
How many students do you have in College Now currently? Do you expect it to be difficult to get in?
