HECCP – Higher Education Certified Collection Professional

The HECCP Certification Program is a three-segment, six-hour educational course taught by industry experts. Each segment covers critical components of higher education collections that every collection professional needs to be compliant and effective and that all collection managers need to successfully administer and train their staff.

Certification through the HECCP program demonstrates to officials that you, the collection professional, are a subject matter expert (SME) in higher education loan programs, receivables management, consumer protection laws and best collection practices. It distinguishes managers who have been trained in core competencies to professionally administer their department.

An examination is given at the end of each segment and participants that earn a passing grade and have completed the Higher Education Certified Collection Professional program will receive the designated HECCP Certification.
