Homestay hostsPlacement Fee

ABODE charges a one-time 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 placement fee is nonrefundable, except in the case of a visa denial. In the event of a visa denial, you must provide proof of the denial for a visa to study in the United States. The placement fee and the deposit are due with the application. No application will be processed without payment.


The $100 deposit is due with the application fee, and 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 part of the first month's rent.
