What Students Are Saying

2.84 Average Rating
If your fresh out of High School I would recommend starting off here to help you save money before you go to that University you've wanted to go to. Or I would try to do a two step program and go to a community college while being enrolled in a University that also saves money. If you haven't been to school in a long time this campus is filled with diversity and there are multi-aged students, so no worries about that.

Get in and get your classes early so you get the ones you need to take right away. As soon as your able you need to try and get your schedule settled. The school has has to do weird things with the budget lately because of the economy, so there's going to be a lot of competition for the necessary classes with the good teachers. Check to check how good a teacher's been rated. I personally avoided a run-in with a particularly crummy teacher because of that site! But most of the ones I checked were good.
Also, get there early. The people may be great but the parking leaves much to be desired for the time being.
Elizabeth from San Antonio, TX
I would recommend talking to an advisor before you apply for classes. They can help you to decide on a major, what classes you'll need, and answer any questions you have.
Amanda from San Antonio, TX
Sign up for your classes as early as possible! They fill up really fast and usually all the good classes are taken.
Leslie from San Antonio, TX
The campus is growing every year, but its very nice and peaceful. The instructors are very helpful. The college also has small classes for one on one time with the instructor if you need additional help. Not to mention the computer labs that have people who specialize in the subjects you need help in.
Cassandra from San Antonio, TX
If you would like to attend make sure you meet with an advisor and stick with them. Prior to attend visit the campus, talk to current students, and make sure to register for classes on time. Classes fill up pretty quick.
Crystal from Natalia, TX
I recommend registering for desired classes as soon as possible because they fill up fast. Also, there is a new GPS on the Alamo College Website which makes creating a degree plan easy.

Halie from San Antonio, TX
Use to your advantage, it is very helpful. Pay tuition on time. Get a map of the campus. If you're a new student, get a map and the week before classes start, go to campus and find the buildings your classes are in. It makes the first week easier.
Alexis from San Antonio, TX
Apply early and dont think just because it's a community college its easy. You have to do your work, homework and show up to every class to be able to pass.
