Military and Veterans

Welcome to Military City U.S.A.™!  The Alamo Colleges District provides support and advocacy for our military families through offices on Joint Base San Antonio and at our colleges through St. Philip’s College Military Support Services (MSS) Department and San Antonio College Victory Center.

Our colleges do not engage in high-pressure recruitment, nor do we provide additional compensation for the recruitment of military-connected families.  Always confer with your education service office before engaging in any voluntary education activity.
