Why do I need to provide a school code?
The college school code is what the Department of Education will use to identify to which college(s) to forward your FAFSA information.
If I'm not sure which of the Alamo Colleges I would like to attend, can I list more than one?
Please add school codes for all campuses you are interested in attending.
Please note that by adding more than one school code, it could delay processing your financial aid by a week. Also, if you change your Home School, your financial aid package will need to be updated and processing time could take at least a week after the change has been made.
If I list all five school codes, how will my primary institution be determined?
The college where you apply for admission, enroll, and receive financial aid will be considered your primary institution.
What if I decide not to attend the Alamo Colleges or am transferring to another institution, do I need to remove the school codes from my FAFSA?
No, but you will need to add the other institution's school code in order for your FAFSA information to be forwarded. Once the institution receives your FAFSA information, eligibility will be determined. Your financial aid at the Alamo Colleges including Federal Pell Grant and Direct Loans will not transfer.
