The Educational Advising Center

The EducationUSA Advising Center (EAC) is an official, accredited authority on U.S. study. We provide information and services to people in Cameroon who are interested in studying in the U.S., and to persons or organizations abroad about Cameroon's educational system and schools.

  • Advice on planning for education and career, selection of fields of study and/or career search at undergraduate and graduate levels.
  • Information on accredited institutions of higher education in the U.S. and in Cameroon.
  • Access to publications, college and university catalogs, university descriptions and addresses.
  • Registration forms and booklets, study materials, and guidance for standardized tests such as the TOEFL, SAT, GMAT, and GRE.
