Our History

Over the past 25 years, we have experienced exciting growth in our membership, have hosted unparalleled annual summer conferences, and provided networking and professional development resources for thousands of educators in our field. The Overseas Association for College Admission Counseling was founded in 1992 when a group consisting of primarily European counselors approached NACAC about the creation of an affiliate regional organization that would represent their needs. Over the years OACAC has continued to grow, becoming incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 2001. In 2016, the organization rebranded itself as the International Association for College Admission Counseling. To see our full history, please visit the History of International ACAC page.
