What is AlamoPROMISE?

AlamoPROMISE covers tuition and required fees for current academic year graduates from participating high schools seeking an academic 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.

As AlamoPROMISE Scholars, students meeting eligibility criteria receive a "last-dollar" scholarship for up to three years or the completion of an associate's degree or academic certificate, whichever comes first. The "last-dollar" scholarship funds the cost of tuition and required fees after financial aid awards are applied.
