Alamo Promise - Save Your Seat! - Alamo Community Colleges

What is Alamo Promise"

AlamoPROMISE makes college more accessible to graduating seniors by providing the support necessary to earn a certificate or associate’s degree at one of the five Alamo Colleges: Northeast Lakeview College, Northwest Vista College, Palo Alto College, San Antonio College, and St. Philip’s College.

It ensures that tuition and fees at the Alamo Colleges are covered for students who graduate from participating high schools.

Through AlamoPROMISE, scholars who meet the eligibility criteria will receive a "last-dollar" scholarship for up to three years or the completion of an associate's degree or certificate, whichever comes first. The "last-dollar" scholarship funds the cost of tuition and required fees that your financial aid award does not cover. Your household income does not disqualify you and there is no minimum academic requirement to be considered for admission.

Because we understand plans sometimes change, you are not locked into a commitment when you pledge to Save Your Seat.
