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. 
The EAC is located in the James Baldwin Information Resource Center(JBIRC) at the U.S. Embassy in Yaoundé.  The following services are available at the EAC:

  • 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.
  • Practical information on studying and living in the U.S.

The EducationUSA Adviser is also available to make presentations to schools, businesses, community groups, and others on studying in the U.S.
