Our commitment to Good Practice

As a member of the National Association for College Admissions Counseling (NACAC), GVSU adheres to the Statement of Principles of Good Practice that serves as a code of ethics and professional practices and includes the following statement: to avoid conflicts of interest and the appearance of unethical behavior, members will not be compensated by commissions, bonuses or other incentive payments based on the number of students referred, recruited, admitted or enrolled.

Specifically GVSU prohibits the fraudulent and aggressive recruitment of military students including, but not limited to, providing compensation to individuals for securing military enrollments or engaging in high-pressure recruitment tactics.  This includes a ban on inducements, including any gratuity, favor, discount, entertainment, hospitality, loan, transportation, lodging, meals, or other item having a monetary value of more than a de minimis amount, to any individual or entity, or its agents including third party lead generators or marketing firms other than salaries paid to employees or fees paid to contractors in conformity with all applicable laws for the purpose of securing enrollments of Service members or obtaining access to TA funds.
