AlamoPROMISE

“AlamoPROMISE is extremely important, not just to me, but for every student in Bexar county. It allows students who wouldn't have the means to continue their education a chance to be successful, and I'm proud to be one of the first students to receive such a generous offer.”

Save Your Seat Now

Are you in the senior class of 2021 and graduating from a participating high school?

The AlamoPROMISE pledge period opens on October 15, 2020.

Pledge to Save Your Seat and submit an application to one of the Alamo Colleges by February 15, 2021 to have your tuition at one of the Alamo Colleges covered.

 

What is AlamoPROMISE?

AlamoPROMISE 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. Philip’s College.

It ensures that tuition and fees at the Alamo Colleges are covered for students who graduate from participating high schools.

Through AlamoPROMISE, scholars who meet the eligibility criteria will receive a "last-dollar" scholarship for up to three years or the completion of an associate's degree or certificate, whichever comes first. The "last-dollar" scholarship funds the cost of tuition and required fees that your financial aid award does not cover. Your household income does not disqualify you and there is no minimum academic requirement to be considered for admission.

Because we understand plans sometimes change, you are not locked into a commitment when you pledge to Save Your Seat.
