The Higher Education Quality Committee Information System (HEQCIS) is the CHE’s information system for private higher education providers student and staff data.

The HEQCIS can be seen as the private higher education counterpart of the data requirements served by the Higher Education Management Information System (HEMIS) containing the public universities data.

The CHE developed the HEQCIS to fulfil the statutory obligation of the NQF Act to upload the achievement data of higher education institutions to the National Learners’ Records Database (NLRD).
