Higher Education Consortium of Central Massachusetts (HECCMA)

Twelve Central Massachusetts colleges, comprise the HECCMA. In addition to cultural activities, interdisciplinary programs, and other opportunities, the Consortium provides a cross-registration service whereby full-time day students of member colleges may register at no additional cost for one course per semester at another campus.

Members of the Consortium, in addition to Worcester State, are Anna Maria College, Assumption College, Becker College, Clark University, College of the Holy Cross, Mass College of Pharmacy and Health Science University, Nichols College, Quinsigamond Community College, Tufts University's Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Massachusetts Medical School, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

Cross registration opportunities (at no additional cost) exist only for matriculated under graduate students taking day courses at one of the member Colleges during the Fall and Spring semesters. Students must be in good academic standing to take advantage of the one course per semester cross-registration option. Student eligibility and course applicability is determined by the Registrar's Office. Further information is posted on the Consortium website — http://www.heccma.org.
