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.

  • My hope is that I leave a legacy at San Jac long after I am gone. I want students to feel like they belong at San Jac and that choosing community college was a great choice. Our time at San Jac is short, so I want everyone to enjoy the moment before going into the workforce or transferring to a university.

  • Alvin Community College offers a vast amount of academic opportunities and provides it at an affordable cost. There is something for every student outside of academics such as theater, Christian organizations, Student Government, Hispanic College Alliance, etc. ACC also provides assistance and information to help when students are in need for instance; scholarships, student worker jobs, catastrophic assistance and even a food pantry. In addition, ACC is involved in the community and that is important to me. #FINSUP!

  • At the College of Mainland, I received tons of support, education, and experience through local hospitals and specialized clinics. Their SIM lab is incredible because it is the closest reality that you're going to get and I feel very prepared in the future of any critical care situation.
