Courses in the Course Exchange
The California Community Colleges Online Education Initiative (OEI) and Cal State Online are partnering together on a summer, online course finder for students. The course finder, powered by Quottly, gives the state’s 2.5 million college students access to more than 10,000 online, transfer-level courses at any California State University (CSU) or California Community College campus.
Students can search for classes using a variety of criteria, including subject matter, IGETC requirement, CSU Breadth Area, or general education requirement. Courses are sorted by distance from the student’s home institution. Students also have the ability to filter by start date, modality, and price. Additionally, community college courses will be sorted by membership in the OEI Consortium and badges denoting accessibility, quality, and support services.
The project, branded with the tagline, Finish Faster!, encourages students to complete their degrees on time. Many CSU students attend community college during the summer to complete necessary, lower-level general education requirements, while community college students often attend school part-time and year-round due to competing work and family lives.

Foothill offers first year (SPAN 1, 2, 3) and second year (SPAN 4, 5, 6) Spanish as
well as Conversational Spanish , and Advanced Reading and Writing.
We have a daytime/evening program on our main campus and at the Sunnyvale Center .
Students can also take Spanish classes in the evening that are taught at a slower
pace spread over two quarters. These sections are designed for working adults or students
who can only attend classes once per week.
We also offer Spanish during the summer with two weeks of full-day instruction for
each of the first three quarters of Spanish. A student can thus complete an entire
year of college Spanish in six weeks during the summer.
If you want to learn or improve your Spanish and immerse yourself in a foreign culture,
you may want to consider studying in Spain for a quarter. Although Foothill’s Campus
Abroad program is not currently offered, other community colleges within California
continue to run some programs. You may want to enroll in one of these programs and
then transfer your credit back to either Foothill or De Anza. Up-to-date detail about
these programs is available at www.ccieworld.org . Click on the “Study Abroad” link on the top of their page.
Credit by Exam
Students with some prior knowledge of Spanish can get credit by examination for one quarter of Spanish.
