How You Can Learn about Admissions into US Universities

Are you living outside of the U.S.? Do you want to apply to college in the United States? There are some simple ways you can learn about the admissions procedures at schools of your interest without contacting an agent. 

In the American education system, American students do not use an agent. It is considered completely acceptable and respectful to research information on one's own and directly get in touch with the concerned person at the college.

Let's see how to do this. 

Step 1: Search for websites on admissions for the school, program, or level

(Click on any of the links below to see a sample Google search using information from SUNY Buffalo for these search terms.)

If you know the name of the college you want to go to, but not your major, you can use these search terms:

If you know the name of the college AND your major:

If you know the name of the college and the name of the school: 

Step 2: Find the contact page or email ID Find the contact name and email ID on the page you are directed to. Try to review the information to your best understanding before contacting the concerned person. 

Keep in mind depending on the size of the school or the search you do, you may be contacting the admissions representative for the entire college, a person in the academic department, a person who works in the international student office, or another college staff. Look for their name and title to know who you are reaching out. 

If you do a search and are wondering about how to contact the concerned person and what to say, get in touch with me. I will guide you if you come to me after doing some research! Contact me by leaving a comment to this blog, or leaving a message on the Facebook page
