Students with Dependents

Students with dependents have many responsibilities. Whether you are a parent, guardian or caretaker, the Alamo Colleges District recognizes the unique challenges students with dependents face as they pursue their educational and career goals.

Access to college doesn't just mean academic help; we are committed to helping overcome hurdles that keep students from reaching their goals.
