General Registration Information: Fall 2020

Fall 2019 Registration begins on April 15, 2019 and proceeds according to time-ticketing.

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.
