Fees & Payments

The Fees Students Must Pay

Application Fee & Security Deposit
One-Time Fee

  • You must pay this at the time of your application. We cannot process applications without receiving the application fee and security deposit payment.
  • Application fee and security deposit are non-refundable in case of cancellation.
  • If no damage has been reported by your host and you do not owe any fees to USH, the security deposit will be returned to you 30 days after the last day using USH services. You must contact us by email 30 days after you move out to receive the security deposit refund.

Housing Fee

  • This is the fee for your stay at the homestay.
  • Your housing fees must be submitted in full before receiving your homestay information.
  • If you requested airport transfer, this fee will be included on your housing fee invoice. You must pay for your airport transfer fee together with your housing fee.


If you wish to continue your stay, all extension requests must be received in writing by email. Please send your extension requests to [email protected] or call 1 (866) 900-4874 or (310) 824-4908. The housing/extension fees must be paid in advance and directly to USH. Under no circumstances may the student or his/her homestay host contract directly with one another.
