AlamoPromise Logo

The AlamoPROMISE program makes college more accessible to graduating seniors by providing the support necessary to earn a certificate or associate's degree at one of the five Alamo Colleges: Northeast Lakeview College, Northwest Vista College, Palo Alto College, San Antonio College, and St. Philips College.


It ensures that tuition and fees at the Alamo Colleges are covered for students who graduate from participating high schools. As a last-dollar funding, AlamoPROMISE covers the gap between financial aid and the cost of tuition for up to three years. 100% of your tuition and mandatory fees will be covered. Your household income does not disqualify you and because we know plans sometimes change, you are not locked into a commitment.

Available to High School Seniors Graduating in 2020

To become an AlamoPROMISE Scholar, you must be a senior graduating from one of the 25 participating high schools with a high school diploma in 2020 and a Bexar County resident eligible for in-district tuition.
