Homestay hostsApplication / Placement Fee (non-refundable)

ABODE charges an application/placement fee. This fee covers the services that we perform throughout the homestay guest's stay in an ABODE homestay. These services include the following:

The application/placement fee is nonrefundable, except in the case of a visa denial (please refer to the online application for further information). In the event of a visa denial, you must provide proof of the denial for a visa to study in the United States. No homesstay application will be processed without payment of the application/placement fee.

Deposit (non-refundable)

A $100 non-refundable deposit is due with the non-refundable application/placement fee. This deposit is used as a cancellation fee for the host if the homestay guest cancels less than two weeks before arriving. If the homestay guest arrives in the homestay as planned, the $100 is paid to the host as a partial payment of the first month's homestay fee. The homestay guest is then responsible to pay the balance of the first month homestay fee to the host directly.
