International Student Recruitment Agents & Agencies

Mt. SAC and the International Student Program collaborates with a limited number of international student recruitment agencies. Such collaborations are codified by formal, comprehensive agreements with the College. Prospective students who work with agents or agencies that do not have an agreement with Mt. SAC do so at their own risk, and Mt. SAC is not responsible for any conduct by such agents or agencies. If you have any questions about any agent or agency who says they represent Mt. SAC, or you are an agency interested in collaboration, please email us.
