What information do I need in order to take my exam?

A valid photo ID is required for all exams.

Any unapproved items for your exam will not be allowed in the test room - purses, cell phones, books, etc. Please be advised to leave these items in a safe place while testing. We offer on a first-come, first-served basis, coin return lockers (this will cost a quarter). The Testing staff is not responsible for holding items and you will not be allowed to test with any unapproved items in the test room.

Having your Banner ID number ready is also helpful - this can be found by going to the Banner ID Look Up page. If you have not applied to one of the colleges of the Alamo Colleges District, please visit AlamoENROLL to find out how to apply.

Please Read: Refresher Course Required

A Mandatory Refresher is a course at no cost and provides a second opportunity into a higher developmental course or a college-level course for students that placed below College Ready on their TSI Assessment results.

Refresher Course enrollment is in Cypress Campus Center, CCC-200, or you may leave a voicemail message for an advisor at 210-486-4753.
