Join the Promise of Tuition-Free College

Thank you for your interest in supporting AlamoPROMISE. This 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 mandatory fees are covered for students who graduate from a participating high school.

AlamoPROMISE is committed to our students and our community. The Alamo Colleges District and its partners are committed to ending poverty, enhancing economic and social mobility and meeting workforce demands in our City by joining forces to help more students complete college and obtain the necessary skills to hold high-wage, high-demand jobs.

One of the best ways to help support the Promise is to make a tax-deductible contribution to support the Promise Scholarships Fund offered through the Alamo Colleges Foundation. Your help is critical.
