The IPERC College Recruitment Program takes much of the burden and the cost of international student recruitment off of your university. By using our network of international partner schools, agency partnerships, and global programs, we connect you with top international students seeking admission to western universities. Our dedicated coordinators are committed to recruiting students and attending agency-sponsored events to promote your school and recruit students with the skills to be successful in university. Our ACCP and joint-partnership programs allow for universities to recruit a consistent group of students, and we do our best to promote our partner universities so that each student understands the strengths and benefits of enrolling there.
School Partner Engagement
IPERC has developed partnerships or working relationships with more than 200 private high schools in the United States and Canada, more than 250 public and private high schools and universities around the world with students looking to pursue a college education abroad. Through these partnerships, we have formed close relationships with school counselors, administrators, and principals, and have provided them with services such as sister school building, professional development, short-term programs and visits, and student recruitment. These partnerships will allow us to identify and recruit potential students and organize university centered events such as information sessions and campus tours.
Agency Partner Engagement
IPERC partners with over 180 sending agencies around the world who primarily support their students in applying to universities abroad. Over the past eight years, IPERC has built strong relationships with consultants from these sending agencies, who develop close relationships with their clients and recommend universities that best fit the student’s needs. Sending agencies also frequently hold recruitment events and other activities for high school students seeking admission abroad. IPERC sends representatives to these events to promote our partner schools, and we routinely invite ambassadors from these schools to participate in our information sessions. IPERC will use these agency partnerships as a significant source for promoting universities.
Educational Program Development
IPERC will assist universities in creating partnerships with universities in China to develop collaborative joint programs. These programs will start with partnerships between corresponding academic departments. These programs may include, transfer agreements, 2+2, 3+1 or 2+2+2 programs, joint-degrees, where students would take classes with the goal of transferring to the U.S. Although it could take up to two years to fully incorporate each partnership, upon completion, universities will have developed a recruitment strategy that recruits students in large groups rather than one-by-one. Each year, universities will have a guaranteed number of new international students who are familiar with the university and its requirements and expectations. After these joint programs are put into place, IPERC will support transfer student paperwork and oversee partner management and relationships to ensure long term success.
Advanced College Credit Pathway
The Advanced College Credit Pathway (ACCP) allows senior high school or first-year university students to take general education college credit courses through Saint Louis University at their home school. Instead of concentrating all their efforts prepping for standardized tests, this program allows students to focus on college course work and English for Academic Purposes in their senior year. IPERC has developed partnerships with universities worldwide who agree to streamline the admission process for ACCP students. These universities form a consortium known as the Advanced College Credit Consortium (ACCC). Students who join the ACCP agree to attend an ACCC university, creating a consistent source of qualified international students with real college experience for the universities. These students will enter universities as transfer students with 24+ college credits.
