The term “Foreign Exchange Student” is now known as “International Exchange Student.” An international exchange student is a student who comes one country, but spends time in another country earning credits for their education. This term generally applies to high school students. International exchange students generally live with a host family while attending school. Sometimes more than one student participates in the exchange, for instance, a host family may send their student abroad to live with another host family while they host an international exchange student during the same time period. You do not have to have a student involved in an exchange program to host an international student. There are several programs that exist to facilitate international student exchange. The United States Department of State maintains a list of approved international student exchange programs.
- There are two types of exchange youth we refer to in Indiana: Indiana students studying abroad and International students studying in Indiana.
- Hosting an international exchange student provides an opportunity to learn from someone who lives in another country and/or culture, to potentially be exposed to a different language and culture, while introducing someone to yours. It may also allow you to make relational ties with a student, family and/or community from another country.
- Becoming an international exchange student provides students with the opportunity to learn about our global community, experience immersion in another language and/or culture and to make relational ties with a family and/or community outside of your home country.
- For an Indiana student: When the student returns to an Indiana school, credits are determined by the local school corporation. They made ask to see course desciptions, material, textbooks, etc., to determine what type of credit can be given/if credit can be given.
- The local school system is responsible for the final determination of what credits to grant and how to interpret the transcript of any transferring student. http://www.doe.in.gov/elme/legal-guidance.
- The J-1 visa is specifically for students participating in the U.S. Department of State designated exchange visitor programs. International students may also study in the U.S. under an F-1 visa. This is a student visa under the administration of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). (http://www.ice.gov/)
