First Time in College

You are a first-time-in-college student if you have never attended a college or university after you earned a high school diploma or GED. You might have entered the workforce afterward and now would like to pursue a college education.

Some College, No Degree

If you have earned college credit but did not finish, online learning may help you reach your academic goals. As an online student, you can attend college while remaining connected to your personal life and engaged in your professional work. In fact, you can earn your degree completely online.

Return to Alamo Colleges

If you have previously attended one of the five colleges, but have not been enrolled for over a year, it is never too late to return. The Alamo Colleges have plenty of online learning opportunities so you can complete your academic goals on your terms.

Start Here, Finish There

Do you want to start your college education at one of the five colleges and finish your degree at a 4-year college or university? If so, we can help you begin this process. You can earn your Associate’s here and then graduate with a Bachelor’s there.
