- Heald is a nonprofit, regionally accredited private career college with campuses throughout the western United States in California, Oregon and Hawaii. We've been preparing students for workplace success since our establishment in 1863. Heald started with one campus in San Francisco, back in 1863, and expanded to 11 campuses across the western United States: Concord, Fresno, Hayward, Rancho Cordova, Roseville, Salinas, San Francisco, San Jose, Stockton, Honolulu and Portland. Heald's Roseville campus has been serving valley residents since 1986. Over the years, Heald Roseville has evolved into a leading career college that offers a range of programs in business, technology and healthcare. As the greater Sacramento area emerges as a great market for new jobs, we continue to carry out our tradition of educating students to become uniquely qualified for rewarding careers with top local employers. The school covers 50,000-square-foot facility that sits along the Interstate 80 corridor, in the center of the Roseville/Rocklin. All Heald campuses are regionally accredited through the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
