For some colleges and universities partnering with commissioned agents to recruit international students is part of a multifaceted admission strategy. NACAC maintains a healthy concern over the potential effects of commissioned recruiting and is committed to advancing best practices.
This series guides NACAC members in the responsible use of commissioned agents in international student recruitment. The content, divided into six parts, will assist members according to recommendations established in NACAC’s Guide to Ethical Practice in College Admission approved by the association’s Assembly in September 2020. Periodically, NACAC collects detailed information about agents on its annual surveys to better understand the impact of commissioned agents on the college admission counseling process.
