About the Texas Gulf Coast Community Colleges Consortium (TGCCCC)
The Texas Gulf Coast Community Colleges Consortium is a partnership of nine public community colleges along the Texas Gulf Coast collaborating to advance the mission of community college education, train the region’s workforce and enrich the student learning experience.
Together the nine public community colleges of the Gulf Coast Consortium enroll nearly 200,000 students in credit courses – almost one-fourth the total enrollment of all community college students in Texas – and another 60,000 students in non-credit Continuing Education and workforce courses.
These students can obtain 63%* of jobs requiring higher education, earning between $50,000* with an associate degree and $70,000* with a bachelor’s degree.

Because of Alvin Community College, I have been able to find a clear route to a successful future. The entire history department offered advice and suggestions on what would be best for my career. I also learned how to work hard and accomplish goals in a consistent and timely manner. These skills have translated into my academic career as well as my social life.
I chose to come to Alvin Community College because of its level of academic excellence.
ACC has a really nice environment and a great healthcare program. I decided to transfer from another community college and never regretted my decision. ACC provides students with more care, more opportunities and a friendlier atmosphere to be successful.
Brazosport College is my college of choice. It means a whole lot to me, but not just for me, but also for my family because my family, they've never gone to college. Just for them to see that I've gone to get my degree, it means a whole lot to them more than this for me.
The Early college high school gives you an opportunity to get a high school diploma and two years worth of college here at Lee College. The most significant advantage I think is that it exposes you to so many classes that you wouldn't have at a high school. It exposes you to fields of study, majors that you wouldn't have at high school.
Coming down here changed that. When I first started down here, I didn't know anything about valves, pumps, anything like that, but they're incredibly thorough. They assume you know nothing, and they just build up from that. As a whole, I'd say it's overwhelmingly positive. I really can't think of anything negative to say about it. It's not that hard. If I can do it, you can do it.
