If you are looking for information about scholarships, need a transcript attested, or if you have any doubts or questions about life as a student in the U.S. you might want to contact an EducationUSA advisor in your country. EducationUSA is a global network of advising centers supported by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs within the U.S. Department of State. Their mission is to provide students with objective information and guidance about educational opportunities in the U.S.
EducationUSA Advising Centers may be located within local libraries or universities, binational centers, the Fulbright Commission, or the U.S. Embassy or Consulate. They can guide you from the very beginning of the university selection process all the way through to the time you board the plane.
Most advising centers have extensive information libraries with university catalogs and brochures, which you and your family can review at no cost. They also provide advice on the application process, scholarships, and life as a student in the U.S. They often host education fairs or have U.S. university representatives visit the center to provide a free public information session about their school. One of our associate directors for international admissions, Jenn, just recently visited the advising center in Seoul, Korea! Some centers offer translation services or they will attest academic documents (a fee may be charged).
The information and assistance you obtain from your EducationUSA Advising Center can serve as an invaluable resource for you throughout your pursuit for study in the U.S. You can visit their web site to find an advising center near you and begin exploring all the great opportunities available in the U.S.
