Higher Education Consultants Association (HECA)
Advancing Professionalism in College Admissions Counseling
The Higher Education Consultants Association (HECA) is a professional organization focused exclusively on the practice of independent college admissions consulting. Since 1997, HECA has been dedicated to advancing professional standards for the higher education consulting field while supporting our members as they expertly guide students through the transition from high school to college. Benefits for our 1,100+ members include an annual national conference, professional development programs, expertly organized campus tours, and a very active listserv which enables members to seek advice from other consultants with a wide range of admissions experience. In addition, our affiliation with businesses that support the educational consulting industry allows HECA to bring up-to-date resources to our membership, often at a discount.
