San Antonio High School Seniors Can Now Apply For No-Cost College Through AlamoPROMISE
TUESDAY on "The Source" — Alamo Colleges introduced its free-tuition program AlamoPROMISE in 2020. Twenty-five San Antonio high schools participated.
The district is now inviting high-school seniors of the class of 2021 to "save a seat" for next year's no-cost-college cohort.
Through the program, eligible students can earn an associate’s degree without paying tuition or fees — no matter how much money their parents make.
What should San Antonio seniors know and do to become an AlamoPROMISE scholar? Who is eligible? How many seats are available?
How successful has the program been so far? How has the COVID-19 crisis impacted operations?
Where does the funding come from to cover students' no-cost college? Will the program be expanded further?
Guest: Dr. Mike Flores, Alamo Colleges Chancellor
