Steps to Becoming a Partner Agency

Thank you for considering Edmonds Community College as a partner institution. The college is selective with its agency relationships, thus the following steps were developed to ensure maximum quality of service to students.

Please review the criteria below before applying:

  • Do you have at least one year experience in recruiting students to study at overseas
    institutions?
  • Can you provide two professional (not personal) references from institutions with whom
    you have worked for at least one year? We give priority to prospective agencies that
    have worked with community colleges or universities in the US.

If you fulfill the criteria above, you may complete the Prospective Agency Form.

The following are the steps for formalizing a partnership with us:

Step 1:

Completed Prospective Agency Form – this application will provide us with important information about your organization, your experience with prospective students, and your interest in representing Edmonds Community College.

Step 2:

Once the form is submitted, Edmonds Community College staff will contact the two professional overseas references provided. The two references must submit their replies within two weeks, with positive feedback, in order for your application to move on to the next step. Please choose your references carefully.

Step 3:

If your references come back positive, the college will notify you of the final decision via
email no later than two weeks after the reference check. The college will send an
official agreement after a referred student successfully enrolls and pays all fees to the
college.

If you have questions about becoming a partner agency, please contact Linh Van at linh.van@edcc.edu.
