Workforce Grants

Any student interested in a grant-funded course must first contact a representative from their local Workforce Solutions Alamo location or SA: Ready to Work counselor. While discussing their interest in the grant-funded course, the student will need to consider their intended start date. Please note, fully online courses are open enrollment and have a flexible start and end date. These dates must be agreed upon by both the student and representative.

After a student has been approved to enroll in a grant-funded course by their local representative, UTSA staff will need to be provided with a voucher to proceed with the enrollment process. Vouchers are generated at the discretion of Workforce Solutions Alamo and are required for enrollment in any grant-funded course. Upon receipt of a voucher, UTSA staff will manually enroll the student in the course. Course access will be granted on the student's agreed upon start date.

To speak with a Workforce Solutions Alamo representative about potential grant-funded courses and training opportunities, please call 210-224-4357 or visit Workforce Alamo Solutions.

Service Animals

Service animals are welcome in all buildings on campus and may accompany an individual to any class, meeting or event on or off campus, if the activity pertains to the curriculum.

  • A service animal is defined as "any dog [or miniature horse] that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual or other mental disability."
  • Service animals are not required to wear any distinctive symbols, harnesses or collars. In addition, the law does not dictate the breed or size of dog that may be utilized.
  • Students are not required to register with Student Disability Services or otherwise obtain permission to be accompanied by a service animal on campus or in the classroom.
  • If it is apparent that an animal is a service animal, university staff and faculty should not ask the individual any questions about the animal's status. If it is unclear if the animal is a service animal, university staff or faculty can ask the individual only two questions:
  • Is the animal required because of a disability?
  • What task or service has the service animal been trained to perform?

If the individual answers that the animal is required because of a disability and has been trained to perform at least one task, the animal is a service animal and no other questions may be asked. Individuals should never be asked about their disabilities, nor should they be asked to provide any license, certification or identification card for the service animal.
