Foothill is first in CA for net lifetime financial return for graduates

The American Institutes for Research collected data nationally on the return on investment for a community college education. Foothill is first in California and third in the nation for net lifetime financial return for its graduates. Given Foothill's commitment to relevant curriculum, effective instructions, strategic partnerships and comprehensive support services for both transfer and workforce majors, we believe this report supports the lifetime value of a truly well-rounded educational experience
