Register Online

Thank you for registering to become a host family or to learn more about hosting an exchange student.

Step 1: Fill out the registration form below and one of our coordinators will contact you to answer any questions you may have about hosting an exchange student. By filling out this form, you do not make any commitment. We are happy to talk with you to explore whether hosting is a good fit for you.

Step 2: Once you have decided to host, complete your online host family application form while we help you select an exchange student. We will work with you individually to assist you in finding a student who best promises to be a great match for your family.

Step 3: Your NWSE Area Coordinator will arrange a time with you for an in-home interview as part of the vetting process.

Step 4: As soon we have secured the student’s admission to the local high school and confirmed your acceptance as an NWSE host family, you and your exchange student can begin communicating with each other!
