Answers

  • When is the dead line to apply for the housing?
  • We would like to receive all completed documents and payment at least 30days before your arrival date so we can match you with host family. If you send your application and payment within one week of your arrival date there will be a late fee.

  • How does USA International choose Host Families?
  • We visit and interview each family and explain our program. We inspect the home and room for student. We carefully review each application form and match student and host family. All families submit to a background check.

  • Can I choose my host family?
  • NO. We carefully match student and host family based on the application forms. We introduce one family to every student. Therefore please fill out your application form accurately.

  • Is it okay if my family or friend stays at host family's house?
  • NO. Please do not ask your relatives or guest to stay at your host family's house during your first three months. This helps the student and host family adjust to living together. After three months please talk with your host family and USAI before asking your guest to stay at your host families home.

  • Can I change my host family?
  • If you feel that your host family is not a good match, you must contact USA International within 30 days of your move-in so that we can arrange a new host family. If you want to change your host family after 30 day, there will be a service charge.

  • What happens if I go on vacation?
  • If you will go on vacation more than two weeks and less than four weeks talk to your host family about a reduced stipend which is normally 50% of two weeks. If you will be gone for more than four weeks your host family may ask you to pay to hold your room. Please remember that each family has differerent rules.

  • When do I receive deposit back?
  • Please contact us once you decide to move out from host family's house. We will refund your deposit after you move out. You must give written two week notice to your host family, return the house key and clean your room. Deposit requests must be received within six months of your move out.

We are here to help students. Please contact us anytime and let us know how you are doing and if you have any questions. Good Luck!!
