We are working with the faculty directly to ensure a seamless transition for students to continue to achieve success in their coursework.

Does this apply to KTC in Kerrville or other satellite locations?

Yes. It currently applies to all of the Alamo Colleges District's locations, including campuses and off-site centers.

When will students be able to return to campus?

For the next two weeks, beginning March 23, students should not return to campuses for classes and will be instructed on how to continue classes and receive support remotely. Decisions regarding classes beyond that time will be made as appropriate.

Will this affect commencement?

Yes, the following changes have been made to the commencement:

  • The graduation application deadline is extended to April 17 and the graduation application is re-opened.

  • Conferring of degrees and certificates WILL NOT be affected. Degrees and certificates will be awarded to students who have satisfactorily completed all requirements of their respective degrees and/or certificates.

  • Your Advisor is the main point of contact as you progress through your degree and prepare for graduation (refer to the Advising section of this page for information on how to contact your advisor). Career Services can help you develop a resume and provide tips for interviewing.

  • Visit Career Coach to research careers and local jobs that align with your certificate or degree program. You can also access our transfer advising guides to ensure your courses transfer and apply.

  • All five colleges in the Alamo Colleges District will be postponing their spring commencement ceremonies until December. Please note that commencement is the actual ceremony rather than degree/certificate earned.
Will students still be able to see their advisors?

Yes, advisors are available remotely. Please refer to the Advising section of this page for instructions on how to contact your advisor.
