I have taken many math and science classes at Foothill College, and there are usually a large representation of international students in them. Due to budget pressures, the college often cancels classes if there are insufficient students to fill them. The enrollment of international students assures that these classes continue to be offered — and funded. Without these rigorous courses, students would not have the preparation for many of the selective universities to which Foothill students have traditionally earned admission . International students and their tuition allow more classes and sections to be opened; it's a win-win situation for all students and taxpayers.
