Hosting a Student

Hosting an international student is a fantastic way to make a profound difference in a student's life, while opening yourself and your family up to new experiences and connections.

Host families offer students support as they adjust to living away from home and in a different culture and environment, and help to ensure that their experiences, both academic and otherwise, are meaningful and positive. With programs ranging in length from one week, to ten months, you can choose which timeframe works best for your family, all while learning with and from your hosted student. 

The following pages answer key questions for anyone interested in becoming involved in our international student hosting program, and provide all the information you need to get started in the hosting process.
