Education Consultants and Agents

South Dakota State University understands the Education Consultants or Agents play a key role in many international markets. Students may apply for admission to SDSU as an individual or work through an educational consultant. Consultants who do not have an affiliation with SDSU are acting as a third party, and are not representing SDSU. Students should review SDSU or contact us directly with questions about any claims made by third parties.

 SDSU follows the principles of good practices published by the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and will provide the names of approved consultants, once the vetting is complete and the agreements have been formalized. SDSU requires all approved consultants to abide by the SDSU Code of Ethics and consultants must disclose to student clients any institutions that are compensating them. Lastly, these consultants should allow students to contact SDSU directly to confirm their affiliation.

At South Dakota State University, we strive to build long-lasting relationships with reputable agencies. Our team in International Admissions looks forward to working with agencies to promote the academic success of students from around the world.
