What is EducationUSA?
EducationUSA is the official name for U.S. Department of State-affiliated educational advising centers overseas. Each year EducationUSA centers receive millions of contacts from students all over the world. Centers are staffed by professional advisers, many of whom have studied in the U.S. Advisers provide comprehensive, objective information on all accredited U.S. higher educational institutions. Advisers are not agents or recruiters and are not permitted to receive commissions from colleges, universities or agents. We ask you to review the State Department's Policy Guidance for EducationUSA Advising Centers regarding Commercial Agents.
