General Registration Information: Fall 2018

Fall 2018 Registration begins on April 16, 2018 and proceeds according to time-ticketing. Time-ticketing is based on the total number of hours earned from colleges in the Alamo Colleges District plus any transfer hours that have been posted to your record, as reflected in the Student ACES System. Additional registration and payment information is available on the Alamo Colleges District Registration/Payment Calendars.

All first-time-in-college students are encouraged to begin the enrollment process early in order to complete all admissions, testing, and registration requirements by the posted deadlines. The Steps to Enrollment  provides a checklist of requirements.

 

In 2018-2019, the colleges are closed: 

  • Monday, September 3, 2018

Any Unpaid Tuition and Fee Balance May Result in Students Being Dropped From All Courses. However, if you do not plan to attend, please drop your courses through ACES or in person at the Enrollment Services/Admissions and Records office before classes begin to ensure a 100% refund. You can check your registration status via ACES.
