EducationUSA Campus Hosting Opportunities

Campus visits provide advisers with first-hand knowledge of U.S. colleges and universities and can help them speak to their students about life on a U.S. campus in a concrete way using real examples.

The EducationUSA network’s success depends on advisers' access to current information and skills-based training. Visits also help U.S. institutions raise their profile internationally and can help them highlight specific programs and services for international students.

Call for Campus Hosts:  Pre/Post Conference Campus Visits

In 2019, there will be opportunities to host EducationUSA Advisers for approximately 2-4 days either before or after the following conferences. Groups of advisers will usually be between 4-8 people. Campuses may also request to host more than eight or less than four.

An ideal proposal would include meetings with international students, a mock admissions panel to review international student applications and a visit(s) to a nearby school(s), if possible an institution of a different type e.g. community college, minority serving, liberal arts etc.


Please note host institutions are required to cover adviser costs for lodging, meals, and local transportation, including travel to/from the campus for arrival and departures. This includes transportation on travel days to/from the airport as needed.  International airfare is provided by the U.S. Department of State.
