Student Pricing

American Homestay Network - A National Network

The American Homestay Network operates in regions across the United States.  Each region has Student pricing specific to the living costs and services being made available in that region. In general, a Student can expect to pay a one-time Placement Fee and monthly Homestay Fees for the duration of their stay. 

Students can contact us directly to get more information.

Placement Fee ($275 - All Regions)

The placement fee is a one-time fee paid at the time of student application. Once we have begun placement services, the placement fee is non-refundable, unless your Visa is denied. The placement fee includes finding you a well-matched host family. Airport transfer via town car is available at an additional cost. Pricing varies with region. Your driver will meet you in the baggage claim or customs area of the airport and take you to your host family.

Homestay Fee Model (All Regions)

Stay Period The standard minimum stay is 4 weeks. You must give your host 2 weeks notice of your intent to move out. If your Visa is denied all fees are refundable. Partial weeks will be calculated at a daily rate. If you wish to stay fewer than 4 weeks, or are a minor student, please complete your application and contact us for details.
Meal Plans Meal plans assume that you prepare your own breakfast or lunch. Dinner will be prepared or made available to you. All homestays have private rooms with a bed, study area and closet for personal belongings. Internet connections, laundry facilities, and all utilities are included  in the homestay price.
Premium Homestay Premium homestay locations are located closer to the school you attend. In general, they are less than 30 minutes total transportation time from your homestay. Standard homestays are generally within 35-45 minutes from homestay to school.
Invoicing Upon acceptance of your application you will be invoiced for the first 4 weeks. We will send you or your agent an invoice every 4 weeks.
Payment Payment can be made online via Visa or Mastercard, or we will send you instructions on how to pay via US bank account. It is important to make prompt payments so that your host is paid in a timely manner.
Pricing Pricing for minors (under 18 years of age) may be priced separately. Credit card and electronic transaction fees will be applied to all automated payments. Pricing is subject to change.
