Business Affiliate Overview and Application

The Coalition for College Cost Savings (The Coalition) creates opportunities for private, nonprofit colleges and universities nationwide to transform processes, reduce costs, and increase efficiencies by leveraging the collective buying power of approximately 1,000 colleges and universities that have access to Coalition programs.

The Coalition Business Affiliate Program helps Coalition member colleges connect with high quality companies that want to promote their products and services to the higher education community. Coalition Business Affiliates support independent, nonprofit higher education through their support of The Coalition and their commitment to providing solutions and preferred pricing to Coalition member colleges.

The benefits of being a Coalition Business Affiliate are:

  • Exposure to approximately 1,000 private colleges and universities

  • Listing in Coalition conference publications

  • Listing on the Coalition website

  • Recognition in Coalition monthly newsletters

  • Discount Business Partner status with the HESS Consortium for IT related companies

To become a Coalition Business Affiliate, a company must:

  • Be committed to supporting independent, nonprofit higher education
