Supporting International Applicants and Promoting an Ethical Model of Global College Admission
Redding, Alexis Brooke
Journal of College Admission, n219 p8-15 Spr 2013
This article examines the challenges facing the pool of global applicants to US colleges and evaluates the practices of the internationaI IECs who currently fill the void that exists between applicants and admission officers. The author, is a doctoral student at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, where she researches ethical issues in higher education, and she argues that tertiary institutions must reevaluate their responsibility for creating a marketplace where fraud is allowed to flourish and that system-level changes must be made to streamline the process for international students. Ms. Redding takes the position that taking action to reduce these discrepancies and providing adequate information is the only way to regain control of the admission process and genuinely support students applying from abroad.
