The Cooperating Colleges of Greater Springfield (CCGS) is an association of accredited colleges and universities located in Hampden County in Western Massachusetts, in and around the city of Springfield. Formed in 1971, the association provides various benefits to the students enrolled in its member institutions. [1] It includes four-year public and private institutions as well as two-year community colleges, all of which are non-profit schools accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.[2]


The CCGS members commonly share academic coursework calendars to allow for students from one college to take classes at another, if desired, while paying the same tuition and fees to their home institution. All the member schools share library resources, and jointly promote institutional events.


The association consists of the following schools:
