The colleges of the Alamo Colleges District will be serving students remotely beginning March 23 due to COVID-19, the Coronavirus. Please be aware that in-person visits at all of our locations are temporarily suspended.  You may communicate with our department via email,  


Unfortunately, Examity, the only company allowed to provide online proctoring service for the TSI Assessment is temporarily down due to COVID-19. Therefore, test-takers will not be able to access their online proctoring services until further notice. We will update our website whenever Examity resumes online proctoring of the TSI Assessment. In the meantime, please be sure to complete the previous enrollment steps leading up to the TSI.


Thank you for your understanding and patience as we transition to serve you remotely!
