Higher Education Coordination Commission

Oregon Administrative Rule Hearings

The Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC) is the State of Oregon public commission and agency that works to improve equitable access to and success in higher education and workforce training for Oregonians. The HECC convenes hearings for public input on proposed Oregon Administrative Rule (OAR) changes. You can find details on the public rule-making process and the hearings here.

The authorities of the Higher Education Coordinating Commission are described in Oregon Statutes (ORS) and Oregon Administrative Rules (OARs).

The Commission may adopt changes to administrative rules. When changes are proposed, we engage in a public rulemaking process. We hold hearings to receive input on the proposed changes.

Anyone can attend, and public comment is welcomed at all public meetings and hearings of the HECC.  Find public hearing dates and details below.
