In order to assist students who have been negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Alamo Colleges is forgiving balances owed by eligible students that were incurred from March 23, 2020, to June 8, 2021.

Any balance on a student’s account that occurred during this time period will be paid in full using federal COVID-19 emergency aid provided to the district.

“There is no doubt that it has been a challenging year for our students, faculty, and staff, and we hope that this investment will help our students and their families,” said Alamo Colleges’ Chancellor Dr. Mike Flores. “Our entire Alamo Colleges District family has demonstrated great resilience over the last 18 months. With the support of this federal emergency aid, our goal is to remove any barriers that may be keeping students from continuing their pursuit of higher education and a brighter future.,” he added.

Students who have not registered for courses in Fall 2021 still have time to register. Registration is open for the 14-week Start II term, which begins September 7, and Fall Flex II, an 8-week session that begins October 18.

The Alamo Colleges also is providing robust support services to help students continue their educational journey. This includes everything from help registering for classes to academic advising, free technology resources, advocacy services such as food pantries and rent and utility assistance, and more.
