The Center works with secondary and university students and conducts outreach programs to schools, colleges, universities, and other institutions across Sierra Leone. The EducationUSA Adviser also offers one-to-one advising to students at the Center. The Center is the research and reference service for U.S. higher education. The EducationUSA library contains over 100 volumes of reference materials on U.S. higher education, including financial aid, test preparation and essay-writing guides, and an extensive collection of DVDs and online resources designed for international students. It offers free Internet and limited printing services to students. The Center is open to high school students, undergraduate, and graduate students, as well as students pursuing professional education. Queries are welcome by telephone (+23299105360), email (kalokohA@state.gov) or in person during office hours. Contact EducationUSA for help with your questions about U.S. higher education. In order to increase students’ likelihood of success, we ask that only students with 5 credits including mathematics and English scores on the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and London A/O level exam request an advising appointment. For students with lower scores, we recommend you first retake your exams to improve your scores before scheduling an in-person appointment. EducationUSA helps you to make the best decisions about your future.
