International Student & Scholar Services


Our HomeStay Program gives you the opportunity to live with a local Cedar City family, share their home, daily lifestyle, share meals, and improve your everyday language skills. Our HomeStay families are very diverse; some are retired couples with no children living in the house while some are younger families with younger children at home. All HomeStay families must pass a stringent screening process to ensure the safety of the students.

HomeStay includes:

  • Private room and bathroom
  • 3 meals per day
  • Transportation to and from campus (if HomeStay is not within walking distance)
  • Options to participate in the family’s weekend and holiday activities

HomeStay Cost:

ESL Students: $1,250 each IEP session. (8 weeks of homestay)

Undergraduate & Graduate Students: $2,775 per semester. (18 weeks of homestay)
