ACAMIS membership consists of 80 international schools in China (including Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and Mongolia) and is growing. Over 65,000 international students from over 70 countries attend our member schools with many seeking to further their education in countries other than China. Many of the university placement counselors in our international schools express a desire for more direct contact with university admission officers.
To meet this need, ACAMIS "Connect with Counselors" will provide a website portal that puts our university placement counselors in direct contact with university admissions counselors. The value of this opportunity for all involved is to develop sustained, long-term relationships with increased understanding of the strengths of the international schools and the unique features and environments of each university/college. Colleges and Universities that join ACAMIS as an Associate Member will receive a listing on the specially designed web page that students and counselors can use to directly access your admissions information.
Due to the unique global conditions from COVID-19, we are extending our annual membership fee of US$996 with the membership and listing period from one year to 2.5 years, from December 1, 2020 to June 30, 2023. After that, the membership and listing period is for 12 months from July 1 to the following June 30. No pro-rata fees will be levied and fees are not refundable. In 2023, all renewing members must pay the annual membership fee by 31 July of the membership period.
We cordially invite you to become an Associate Member of ACAMIS and have access to and personal contact with our ACAMIS University Placement Advisors/Counselors.

Partnership with ACAMIS member schools, all of which are fully accredited and reputable. Student records are carefully maintained, accurate and reliable. ACAMIS schools offer a high-quality international curriculum, most are International Baccalaureate, British, or with Advanced Placement course offerings, with a few offering similarly strong national curricula - i.e., Canadian or Australian.
