Latest information on operational modifications for fall 2021 Roadrunner Roadmap

Alamo On-TRAC

On-TRAC (Transitioning Roadrunners at Alamo Colleges) is a program for first-time freshman students who apply to UTSA but may not qualify for guaranteed admission into UTSA.

Students can not apply directly to On-TRAC but are offered the opportunity to be a part of the On-TRAC program. Students who are offered the program and accept will begin at one of the Alamo Colleges in the fall semester of their freshman year. In the spring, students will be co-enrolled both at Alamo Colleges and UTSA. If all the necessary criteria are met, then the student will be taking all of their courses at UTSA beginning the following fall semester. On-TRAC provides students a pathway to UTSA and improve student success.

Why should I sign up for On-TRAC if offered the program?

  • To be provided a pathway to UTSA.
  • To be offered guaranteed admissions to the university upon successful completion of On-TRAC requirements (Note: This does not guarantee admission to majors with additional admission criteria).
  • To not have to reapply for admission to UTSA.
  • To build a strong foundation academically.
  • To have a UTSA Student Success Transfer Advisor to support you along with a Alamo College advisor during the first year.
