EducationUSA Lagos

The EducationUSA Advising Center at the Public Affairs Section of the United States Consulate Lagos offers students access to accurate, comprehensive, and current information about educational institutions in the United States. We do this by offering free counseling sessions every Tuesday and Wednesday at the advising center as well as free outreach to secondary schools and universities in Southern Nigeria. In addition, EducationUSA conducts a highly selective membership program, which is designed for Nigerians and Third Country Nationals who are academically qualified to study in the U.S. We take them through the steps of applying to the most appropriate schools. We provide tutorial materials to prepare them for the standardized tests. We work in a library environment including dress codes and ethics instruction so they will be able to adjust to the American academic environment. Upon receiving an I-20 from a U.S. institution, we take them through a Visa Orientation Session to prepare them for the visa interview. All admitted students are then invited to a Pre-Departure Orientation where they can discuss their travel to the U.S. and campus life. Professors and students from U.S. institutions are invited to give them the proper perspective.

EducationUSA advisers serve as proctors for institutional examinations for distance learning students and the LSAT. We coordinate the United States Achievers Program (USAP) for academically excellent but financially disadvantaged students, the Career Connect summer internship program for returning students, the Annual College and Career Fair in October, and outreach to universities, secondary schools and American Corners.
