Student Payment to Host Family 

Students pay for the first two months of their homestay plus a deposit of $500 on the first day of arrival. After that, the rent is month to month. There are no refunds for eligible students who choose to move out before the end of the two-month period.


 

Family Vacation 

Families who go on vacation should email the Housing Program Coordinator with dates and plans to provide for their student's meals. It would be best if a friend of the family or extended family member could cook meals and check on the student.


 

If students want to move out or change families 

New students must remain in the homestay program for a minimum of two months

Students have to continue paying for the Homestay for a minimum of two months’ even if they move out early.

Students who plan to move out or those who wish to change host families after the two-month contract period, are required to give their host families 30 days' notice.


 

What do I do about meal times? 

Each household is different. Communicate with your student about when meals are served if you are hosting student with a meal plan. If you will not be home at mealtime, you must let your student know. If the student will not be home, he/she should let you know. In either case, have food available for the student to eat when he/she arrives home.
