Recruitment Agents

If you are a professional international student recruitment agent or agency and would like to be considered for an agent agreement to recruit students for ELI programs, please contact ELI Administrator, Rachel Mauer, for more information. Please note, in order to receive commission:

  • The agent must have a valid signed agent agreement with the ELI before the student registers and pays for classes. Please allow 4-6 weeks for the review of your agent application, contacting references, and processing of the agreement. The ELI cannot pay commission to any agent or agency that does not have a valid signed agent agreement in our system before the student registers and pays for classes.
  • The student must also indicate the name of the agent or agency in section of F of his/her application to the ELI.
