The Alamo Colleges host students from many regions of the world. These students represent countries such as Mexico, South Korea, Vietnam, India, Colombia, Japan, Thailand, Morocco, Brazil, Mongolia, and Nepal.

So why do international students choose Alamo Colleges? All employers seek culturally competent employees who speak English and possess the global skills and competencies in their respective academic and professional fields. Our colleges have a reputation for academic excellence and rigorous English as a Second Language programs. Thanks to our smaller class sizes, we offer a supportive and collaborative learning environment.

Alamo Colleges also provide international students the opportunity to transfer to a four-year university to complete a bachelor’s degree, and for some to attend graduate school.

International Student Services (ISS) offers comprehensive assistance to international students who choose to attend one of the five Alamo Colleges. Services offered include:

  • International Admission Processing. The Admissions and Records office accepts all international applications and transcripts for admission, and issues the form I-20 for the student visa.
  • Immigration Advising. The Admissions and Records office provides information on a variety of immigration matters, including authorization for employment, extension of stay, re-instatement and change of non-immigrant status.
  • General Assistance. The Admissions and Records office provides letters documenting enrollment for embassies, banks, and military organizations. Applications for Social Security cards and the necessary letters are also available.
