Higher Education Consortium of Central California (HECCC)

The Higher Education Consortium of Central California (HECCC) was established in 1981 as a partnership of two universities and four community colleges committed to the advancement of academic excellence in a distinctively diverse region. To learn more about the rich, dynamic history of this collaborative group, please visit the archive of HECCC’s Consortium History.

Even though the formal consortium has concluded, a rich partnership continues today as Stanislaus State, Columbia Community College, Merced Community College, Modesto Junior College, and San Joaquin Delta College work together to assist a large shared student transfer population.

Our work today mostly focuses on the maintenance of articulation grids designed to aid transfer students in meeting particular objectives.
