The health and wellness of students, faculty, and staff of Alamo Colleges District is our highest priority. Out of an abundance of caution, St. Philip's College and all of the Alamo Colleges have made changes to the way we provide instruction and operate in light of the evolving concerns related to the coronavirus.

With safety as our top priority, we are implementing a slow and careful return to campuses for Fall 2020.
