General Registration Information: Fall 2022

Fall 2022 Registration begins on April 15, 2022 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.
