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.

  • I chose to come to Alvin Community College because of its level of academic excellence.

  • 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.

  • I love the care that goes into community colleges and that community is usually their focus. The first time I set foot on Alvin Community College campus, I felt at home and welcomed instead of just another student.

  • 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.
