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.

  • COM has the best PTEC program around. We have some of the best instructors. They're very helpful and supportive. The best part is they come from the industry. Without COM, I wouldn't be where I'm at today.

  • Sometimes college can be a place where you can get easily lost in the crowd. As a SGA and PTK officer, I want to impact the student population by making them feel part of something great.

  • I chose ACC because it is close to home and has an amazing Drama program.

  • There are so many opportunities for students interested in a career in culinary arts. You don’t have to spend all of your time in the kitchen. There are careers as food stylists, bloggers and food reviewers and in areas such as competitive cooking. The sky is the limit for those who want to work hard and pursue certifications.

  • It is a good transition between high school and college. ACC is affordable and close to home. While ACC was not my first choice I have come to realize the opportunities I will have by attending a college close to home and am excited to explore and take full advantage of all provided.

  • BC has helped me not only academically but also personally. Helping me grow from a very shy person to somebody who works in the writing center and helps everybody that they can.
