Roadrunners, we know that in the past few weeks there have been many structural changes to how classes will be conducted due to COVID-19. For the safety of the Roadrunner Community, we will not be able to offer in-person meetings but we will continue to support students by transitioning to an online platform. We are still here to support you! If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to call or email us.

Please feel free to email or call 210-458-5957 to be assisted via phone or a virtual platform. See more on UTSA’s response on COVID-19

About Alamo Runners


The Alamo Runners Program supports students that were admitted to UTSA but enrolled at one of the five Alamo Colleges instead by providing a seamless transition experience. Students who participate in Alamo Runners enroll in 12 hours at their respective Alamo College and 3 hours at UTSA.

Dual-enrollment provides access to the four-year experience and all of the benefits that go with it, all for the same cost of taking a class with Alamo College. After a total of 45 hours, you can then transfer to UTSA without reapplying, to complete your bachelor’s degree and potentially receive your associate’s degree by way of Reverse Transfer. It is important to note that you would still need to meet the specific admission requirements for your major.

Interested? Contact Maria Olalde or fill-out our interest form.

The program coordinator will be assisting you throughout this process. If you have any questions or would like clarification on any of these points, please contact us at: Email: or Phone: (210) 458-5957
