Respect for All
Northeast Lakeview College was officially established in January 2007 as the newest of the five Alamo Colleges. The college offers 370,000 sq. ft. of academic space and sits on 267 acres at the corner of Loop 1604 and Kitty Hawk Road in Universal City, TX. NLC offers quality academic programs and
workforce opportunities for local businesses and community partners.
Northeast Lakeview College traces its beginnings back to 1996 as the Northeast Learning Center on Toepperwein, an extension of St. Philip's College. In June 2000, ACCD purchased land at 7990 Pat Booker Road, and in Spring 2001, the first classes at Northeast Campus (NEC), an extension of St. Philip's
and San Antonio College(s), were held. The Northeast Campus continued to grow and hold classes at this location until Fall 2006 when ACCD purchased and renovated a former building at 8300 Pat Booker Road. NEC classes were held at this location while the permanent site of Northeast Lakeview College was under construction. In Fall 2008, five buildings at the new campus opened and in Fall 2009, all nine buildings became fully-operational.
With its unique and diverse background, Northeast Lakeview College serves about 6,000 students from ten, small surrounding communities and northeast San Antonio – including Bexar, Comal, and Guadalupe Counties. NLC graduated its first student in 2009 and since then, continues to demonstrate a steady increase in completion and graduation rates. Students completing Northeast Lakeview College can transfer credits to a university and have the experience and knowledge to succeed in the workplace. Also housed on the NLC campus is the Judson Early College (JECA), a unique partnership with Judson ISD that allows high school students to attend college simultaneously and graduate with both a high school diploma and an associate degree. The College continues to grow and at capacity.
