Alamo Colleges Educational Services (ACES) Portal
From registering for classes to viewing your pay stub - we have it all in ACES. The home page for logged-in users will eventually function as a one-stop shop for students, faculty and staff with various customizable links to information pertinent to that user. The single sign-on feature is a major benefit of ACES, allowing one login to access various applications.
In ACES, the default home page for students, faculty and staff, will be populated with various links and graphics that are of general interest to users. However, users can customize their home page to remove or add certain links.
In addition to Banner integration, features of the new portal include channeled content and layout; end-user customization; separate channels for e-mail, personal and campus announcements. ACES will also provide other portal channels such as group collaboration tools that can be used by departments, organizations and clubs.
Over time, portal features will allow users to create an online environment customized for every member of the college community.
We will constantly look to offer new functionality to students, faculty and staff that will enhance your ACES experience and help you take care of your business quickly and easily. Have an idea for something else we can do to make things better? Tell us at firstname.lastname@example.org
