First Time in College (FTiC) – This will be the first time that you will attend college. Students who completed college courses as dual credit, but have not attended college after completing high school are considered to be First Time In College students.
A Refresher Course will be required for students that are placed into development based on their TSI Assessment results. Refresher courses are at no cost and provide a second opportunity to move into a higher developmental course or a college-level course. The required refresher must be done prior to enrolling into the Group Advising and New Student Orientation. Please take this into consideration in order to provide enough time to register for classes before registration deadlines.
Transfer -- You have previously completed any college coursework (not including dual credit).
Former student- you have previously completed coursework at any of the five Alamo Colleges, but have not been enrolled in the past year.
