TIEP welcomes student referrals from study abroad organizations

TIEP works with a select group of student recruitment agencies that provide high quality services and adhere to the guidelines for ethical conduct and recruitment of students set forth in NAFSA’s Code of Ethics and in NAFSA’s Principles of Good Practice for the Recruitment and Admissions of International Students.

TIEP is an Institutional Member of the American International Recruitment Council (AIRC).

The mission of AIRC is to work to safeguard the interests of both international students and educational institutions through the promotion of ethical, standards-based international recruitment practices.

Contract-backed Relationships

All TIEP agents receive a Certificate of Representation upon signing a contract to recruit individuals and groups to participate in ESL courses and other training programs offered by TIEC and TIEP.  The contract outlines the duration of the agreement, the commission structure, invoice preferences, and payment information.

Easy Payment Structure

We work with agencies to ensure that greater recruitment efforts receive greater rewards.  With our tiered commission structure, the more annual tuition an agency generates, the more its commission payment has the potential to increase.  To learn more about commissions, contact Dr. Terry Simon.

Reliable Communication

Every agent receives priority service and is encouraged to contact TIEP staff with any questions, concerns, or suggestions.  Be it a scheduling conflict or a payment inquiry, we respect the value of your time and the efforts you make on behalf of your students.
