The Higher Education Consultants Association (HECA) is a professional association for college admissions consultants. Our members come from a variety of backgrounds, but all share a dedication to providing professional and ethical service to the families they serve.
If you believe you are eligible for membership in HECA, the next step in applying for membership is to review HECA's expectations for members.
If you do not meet the full eligibility requirements, you may be eligible as a Provisional Member. Check HERE for Provisional Member requirements.
HECA is an organization comprised of individual members. In a multi-person practice, each IEC is eligible for membership in HECA and their membership application will be reviewed individually. HECA membership benefits are extended to an individual, not a member.
If you are interested in becoming an IEC but don't have any experience yet, click HERE for some ideas on how to get started.
*HECA's membership cycle is March 1 through February 28. Membership for new members joining HECA from March 1 through November 30 will expire February 28 of the following year. Those who join between December 1 and February 28 will receive membership through the rest of the current membership cycle plus the next membership cycle (up to 15 months).
