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. Philip's College.
It is our goal to allow as many eligible students as possible to take advantage of the exceptional opportunity offered by AlamoPROMISE, and we understand that completing these two steps takes time. To allow for this, we have set a new deadline for completing these last two steps—midnight, March 20, 2020.

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