Tampa Bay Higher Education Alliance (TBHEA) is a professional association of regionally accredited schools in the Tampa Bay metropolitan and surrounding areas. Regional accreditation ensures that the institution of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality. Status is granted by one of the six U.S. regional accrediting bodies.

The purpose of TBHEA is to serve as an education resource to corporate and non-profit institutions. Our goal is to bridge the skills gap between an organization’s workforce needs and current capabilities. One school may not meet the needs of every individual. By coming together and offering multiple options, TBHEA helps employees compare and identify the best choice to meet their career goals.
