What Are the Purposes of AIRC?

AIRC, a non-profit organization, was founded in 2008 to:

  • Develop standards of ethical practice pertaining to recruitment of international students to American educational institutions
  • Develop best practices and training to assist overseas student educational recruitment agencies and institutions themselves to better serve students seeking admission to American educational institutions 
  • Establish a framework through which participating educational agencies can have their practices certified

A Rigorous Process

Receiving AIRC certification entailed opening our organization to a rigorous process that includes an in-depth audit of ApplyBoard’s:

  • Policies
  • Programs
  • Partners
