HECA Membership Application Instructions

We look forward to receiving your application for membership in the Higher Education Consultants Association. 

The application process is entirely online. Please note: The individual applying for membership must complete the application personally; the application may not be completed by another person on the behalf of the prospective member. 

Annual HECA Membership Dues are $300.   Our membership cycle is March 1 through February 28. Membership for new members joining HECA from March 1 through November 30 will expire February 28 of the following year. Those who join between December 1 and February 28 will receive membership through the rest of the current membership cycle plus the next membership cycle (up to 15 months). If you pay by check, your application will not be processed until the check is received, so allow additional time for processing.

Please take a moment to review the important information about the application process below before you start your application.

Attention HECA International Applicants:

HECA Membership applications for International Consultants are now closed until Feb 1, 2014.  We are in the process of re-designing our International Application.  We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding.

Before you begin your application:

  • If you have not already done so, review our membership eligibilty requirements, our expectations for membership, and HECA's Standards and Ethics Statement before you begin the application. You will be asked several questions about these items in your application.
  • Gather information about your professional experience, education, and consulting practice.
  • Write a brief (150 characters or less) description of your practice to include on your application.
  • You will need your credit card to pay your membership dues at the end of the application. There is an option to pay by check, but your application will not be processed until the check has been received.
  • The application must be completed and submitted online. We do not offer paper applications.
  • We recommend that you use one of the following Internet browsers to complete and submit your application: Internet Explorer 7 or higher and Mozilla Firefox 3.6 (Win)/8.0(Mac) or higher.  Safari 5.0.5+ and Chrome 15+ should also work. The application currently cannot be completed on cell phone or other mobile devices.

Membership Dues and the Membership Approval Process:

  • Membership dues are $300 annually. You will be asked to pay your dues for the coming membership year online by credit card when you submit your application.  If you are not accepted for membership, this amount will be refunded.
  • You may apply for membership at any time during the year, but your membership dues will only cover the current membership year. Our membership year runs from March 1 to February 28(9).
  • After your application is received, it will take approximately 21 business days for our membership committee to review and approve your membership. Our membership chairperson will email you when a decision on your application has been made. Your application will not be reviewed until your recommendation letter, payment, and all other information has been received.
  • If you have questions, email HECA's membership chair at Membership@HECAonline.org.
