How do I apply and what is involved?

Start your host journey by filling out our Host Family Application and we'll guide you through the rest of the process.

The initial host family application is a capture of basic personal and household information that should take only about 10-15 minutes to complete. The full process is outlined below:

  1. Complete the online application (10-15 minutes)
  2. Submit quality photos of your home and family
  3. Receive your welcome email
  4. Complete your online profile / submit banking info for payment
  5. Take the online training and self-assessment (under 1 hour)
  6. Schedule your home interview with your Customer Service Team Member. 
  7. Submit and wait for background checks to come back
  8. You are ready to host!

While the application can be completed in 10-15 minutes, we do advise you to take your time crafting the profile to ensure we get the best student matches possible.
