Report of the Commission on International Student Recruitment

Report of the Commission on International Student Recruitment

This report outlines the findings and recommendations of the Commission on International Student Recruitment on the use of commission-based recruitment of international students by US schools and institutions. In 2011, the NACAC Board of Directors tasked the commission to assess the need to amend the mandatory ban on per capita remuneration of domestic and international recruitment in the association’s Statement of Principles and Good Practices. They concluded that while NACAC should continue to be very cognizant of the potential effects of commissioned recruiting, it should also address the changing trends in international recruitment and lift the ban in favor of a best practice stance.
