American NACAP lifts ban on recruitment agencies

VU International News and Reviews No. 08 June 17 2013

June 2013

In May 2013, the National Association for College Admission Counseling has published a report on the use of agents in international student recruitment. Although many members of the Commission have serious concerns about student welfare within the general context of commissioned agency, the report also notes that there are institutions and organizations which appear to use such agency responsibly and demonstrably for the good of the students they serve. The report recommends NACAP to lift the current ban on using agents; it still recommends that NACAP declares it best practice not to use agents and also lays down mandatory rules for NACAP members that do engage agents on accountability, transparency, and Integrity.
