While the Alamo Colleges District is currently in temporary work from home state, it is even more critical that we are vigilant of phishing attempt emails. Please be watchful of email containing the following Alamo Colleges District external message warning. **THIS EMAIL IS FROM AN EXTERNAL SENDER OUTSIDE OF THE ALAMO COLLEGES.

Phishing attacks can take many forms, but they all share a common goal – getting you to share sensitive information such as login credentials, credit card information, or bank account details.
