The University of Idaho contracts with agents around the world in order to promote our programs as widely as possible. Agents work with local students directly- guiding them through the search for a U.S. university, submitting applications, applying for the appropriate visa, and preparing to arrive on campus. Agents are knowledgeable about the U of I academic programs, campus culture and application process in order to help students make the best choice for their educational goals.
The U of I International Marketing and Recruitment team reviews applications to become an approved agent several times throughout the year. Approved agents receive our quarterly newsletter, individualized training, preference for meetings at international, national and regional conferences, site visits by the U of team, participation in international recruitment fairs and commission for students that enroll at U of I. Agents are expected to act with the highest levels of integrity and transparency with students and the U of I regularly surveys students that have worked with our agents to ensure that their expectations and needs are being met.
