Is your family ready for an experience of a lifetime? If yes, consider the opportunity serving as a host family. Hosting is the sharing of cultures between an international student and your family: customs, friendships, traditions – it’s a growth and learning experience for all involved.
International students also help CC students learn more about cultures outside of the US. While some international students live with family, most international students rely on a host family. And for that reason, the LCSS offers LSCC host families of CC diploma-bound international students a reimbursement of $1,300/semester or $2,600/year to be applied to the family’s 2019-20 tuition and fees balance.
ADDITIONAL HOUSEHOLD STIPEND
In addition to host family reimbursement applied to tuition and fees, there typically is also a monthly stipend to help offset additional expenses. International students coming to CC through a foreign exchange program, such as FLAG, typically have a preset monthly stipend. For students coming to CC independently (not though an exchange program), a monthly stipend should be agreed upon between the student’s family and the host family. This stipend can be set-up to be paid by the student’s family directly to the host family, or it can be run through the LCSS Business Office (with a 1099 issued). The Admissions Office can help with recommended stipends.
WHO NEEDS A HOST?
We have one host family, and we are in need of 3 more! Jerry Xie CC/11, a student at CC for the past two years needs a host family, as do 2 new students: Jessica, CC/11 (cousin to Fr. Samuel Kalu) and Jia CC/11. Won’t you consider this meaningful experience for not only your family, but for these students as well?
