Agent Partners List

San Francisco State University (SF State) works closely with a wide range of educational agents throughout the world. These agents and counselors work with local students directly: guiding them through the wide selection of U.S. universities and programs, assisting with the application process, applying for the appropriate visas, and assisting with study abroad preparation. Agents are trained by the SF State staff to gain knowledge of our many academic programs, campus culture, and application processes. Our primary goal is to partner together to assist students in making the best choice for their academic future.

Both SF State and our partner agencies commit to the international recruitment standards that put the best interests of prospective students and their families first. San Francisco State University is an institutional member of both the American International Recruitment Council (AIRC) and NAFSA: Association of International Educators. As an AIRC member institution, San Francisco State University subscribes both to the AIRC Standards and Rights and Responsibilities which may be found in the AIRC Certification and Process Standards Manual. SF State also subscribes to NAFSA’s statement of ethical principles which helps guide international educators in providing high-quality education and services to participants in international education and exchange.

Working with a network of professional international recruitment agencies is an important part of the SF State’s international recruitment plan. SF State and our partner agencies not only agree to follow the laws, regulations, best practices, and ethical considerations set by both AIRC and NAFSA but also commit to putting the best interests of prospective students and their families at the forefront of all considerations. All agencies must be established and have a history of successful operation, are certified by a reputable accrediting body (i.e. AIRC, ICEF, British Council, Australian Government, Chinese Ministry of Education, etc.) or must be recommended by partner schools who have an established relationship with the agent and who can provide positive references.
