Students are encouraged to stay informed of any changes that may affect them by meeting with an academic counselor/advisor regularly.

  • Many students who enroll at the Alamo Colleges District plan to transfer to a college or university with upper-division or junior standing. During their enrollment at Alamo Colleges District, they are advised to fulfill the lower-division requirements for the college or university selected for their continued education.
