One way for students to get the most of their cross-cultural experience at INTERLINK is to live with American families. Living with an American family gives students the opportunity to practice their English outside of the classroom, learn more about American customs and culture, and make life-long friends. Homestays are dependent on availability of host families. If you apply and cannot be placed, your application fee will be refunded.

Carefully consider the following questions and answers to help you make a decision about whether you are the kind of person for whom a homestay is most appropriate. If you decide to do a homestay, please consult the US Institute of your choice about how to apply, or visit their websites for instructions – Indiana State University, Montana State UniversitySeattle Pacific UniversityThe University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
