It is the largest and most respected organization representing independent educational consultants. An IECA member educational consultant is a skilled professional who provides counseling to help students and families choose a school that is a good personal match: one that will foster the student’s academic and social growth.

 

IECA members adhere to the strictest ethical standards in the profession, visit hundreds of campuses each year, and are among the most experienced educational consultants in the profession. They focus on finding the best match between student and school.

 

Many schools have gained students from new communities because of their outreach to IECA members. As a Director of admission for 20 years the IECA consultants were crucial in helping us find the best mission appropriate students…they are fantastic people to work with!

 

National and regional media, as well as government agencies, rely on IECA as the authority of the profession. IECA is consistently cited by the media as the association with ethical, student-centered advising.
