12 Questions to Ask Before Hiring an IEC

What is an Independent Educational Consultant?

Independent educational consultants (IECs) help find the right school or college for your student. A great match between a school's offerings and your student's academic, social, and community needs and desires will enrich and enhance your child's life and can impact his or her future. Finding the right fit is where an IECA member educational consultant plays a vital role.

IECA members can be trusted to meet your family's needs because they have met the highest standards in the profession. IECA's required qualifications include: a master's degree; at least three years of admissions counseling experience; and experience working with scores of students. We also require extensive campus visits-our members, on average, have visited over 150 campuses each, and continue to visit an average of 35 campuses annually.
