Using an agent representative is not a requirement at VCC. Students may choose to apply on their own, or an agent may refer and help students apply to VCC.
Agency information must be included on the top of the student application form. Upon signing the application forms, students authorize VCC to include their agents in admissions-related email communications.
VCC-approved agents with a valid agent agreement must include their VCC agent codes on the application forms to be eligible for commissions. The VCC agent codes are on the first page of the VCC agent agreements. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you cannot locate your VCC agent code.
While non-VCC agents without a formal agent agreement are not eligible for commissions, they may still represent the students as long as the students provide consent by including the agency information on the application form or submitting a Consent for Release of Information Form.
Students are not required to use an agency to apply to VCC. For students who wish to apply on their own, they may choose not to include agency information on the application form. After applying, if students wish to appoint an agent as their representative, they may submit the Consent for Release of Information to release their admissions information to an agent. However, commissions are not payable.
To be eligible for commissions, VCC-approved agents must send the applications of the prospective students to VCC. Agent information added after students apply on their own is not considered agent referrals, and the agents will not be eligible for commissions.
Students who were previously enrolled at VCC are not considered prospective students, and agents referring these students to VCC will not be eligible for commissions. This includes students who have withdrawn after classes started, or graduated from VCC.
Change of agency is not permitted for commission purposes. While students may request to use a different representative after a VCC-approved agent submits the application, commissions are paid to the first referring agency upon successful enrolment.
If a prospective student’s application is withdrawn, it is considered an unsuccessful referral. In such cases, a re-application from a different agency may be accepted upon the approval of VCC's Manager of International Marketing and Recruitment.
