With five campuses across the San Antonio area, Alamo Colleges has a lot of ground to cover when it comes to providing an affordable education.

The network's board recently approved a new tuition policy, which incentivizes students to take a full load of  classes during spring and fall semesters in order to receive free credit hours the following summer.

Lawmakers at the state capitol are examining whether the state needs to allow more community colleges to offer four-year baccalaureate degrees.  One of those institutions is San Antonio’s Alamo Colleges, which will be pursuing that effort during the 2017 legislative session.


 As a way of making a four-year college more affordable, In 2003 state lawmakers passed legislation that gave a limited number of community colleges the permission to develop up to five baccalaureate degree programs.
