Bigfoot Orientation

Welcome to SFCC!

All incoming students must complete the online Bigfoot Beginnings course in Canvas. While completing Bigfoot Beginnings, first-time college students will sign-up to attend a required Bigfoot Registration session, where they will enroll in classes for the upcoming quarter.

If you are a Running Start student, your enrollment process looks different!
