Some of the agencies listed above are certified by the American International Recruitment Council (AIRC). Those agencies that are not AIRC-certified go through a UWM vetting process.

Another helpful resource for higher education information is EducationUSA, a U.S. State Department-sponsored organization with a network of advising centers around the world.

As well, UWM has a Regional Manager, Ms. Priyal Shah, who is based in Ahmedabad, India and is responsible for outreach to students and agents in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. Ms. Shah can be reached at and prospective students from these countries should feel free to contact Ms. Shah directly.
