Professional Standards and Ethics

Todd Richman is a member in good standing of the Independent Educational Consultants Association. IECA is a not-for-profit, international professional association representing experienced independent educational consultants. Membership in IECA requires professional training, experience, references, and a pledge to uphold stated guidelines governing ethics and good practice.

As stated by IECA, the fundamental role of an independent educational consultant is to

help students explore college opportunities and find the right place for them to succeed academically and socially. IECs don’t get students admitted—they help students find

colleges that fit, and then put their best foot forward.

Achieve Admissions does not guarantee admission to any college. We receive no commissions or fees to recommend or refer any college. While we provide guidance, the student is solely responsible for completing all college applications including essays and standardized tests.
