Congrats class of 2023!

The Alamo Colleges District takes pride in its 10,000 graduates, including the nearly 500 AlamoPROMISE graduates. Their goals were achieved through hard work and a tailored college experience with personal services including:

  • Low to No-Cost Tuition
  • Personal Advising
  • 350+ Degree and Certificate Programs
  • Seamless Transfer to Universities
  • Flexible Schedules
  • Certificate, Associate, and Bachelor Degree Programs

With their advanced skills and learning, our graduates are empowered to thrive and make a positive impact in the San Antonio community. In an average year, past and present Alamo Colleges students generate $2 billion in added income for the region. Graduates themselves will benefit from a $9,400 increase in earnings each year compared to someone with a high school diploma.

We congratulate them, share their inspiring stories, and watch with pride what they’ll overcome and achieve next.



We are grateful for the community’s support of our vision for the future.

This past year, the Alamo Colleges District has further expanded opportunities to make higher education accessible and affordable for all.

Our five colleges offer a vast array of programs ― from certificates and short-term training programs to associate degrees and now baccalaureate programs, and all the support to help students get there.

Our credits transfer to four-year universities for those pursuing their bachelor’s or a higher degree. And our workforce development programs help individuals build new careers and meet the needs of businesses.

The Alamo Colleges District is doing more than ever to empower our diverse communities for success.

We thank our faculty, Board, and community partners for your vital support of this mission.
