Four of the Alamo Colleges were among 15 institutions of higher learning across the state receiving the 2022 Veteran Education Excellence Recognition Gold Award by the Texas Veterans Commission’s (TVC) Veterans Education Program.

Northeast Lakeview College, Palo Alto College, St. Philip's College, and San Antonio College all earned this year's gold award, the highest of three levels of recognition intended to highlight the depth and breadth of services provided to veteran students and their families.

Established by the Texas legislature in 2021, the award recognizes universities and colleges providing excellence in education and related services that significantly contribute to the academic success of student veterans and military-connected students.

The Veteran Affairs teams at all four colleges help veterans fully understand their VA educational benefits as well as resources available to them while enrolled, such as:

  • Computer lab and resources
  • Food, recreational activities, lending library
  • Priority/early registration, fee waivers
  • Enrollment-to-graduation advisement
  • VA work study
