If you signed up to participate in the CFIS Host Family Program, you should hear from International Place by the end of July regarding your host family.
Students will be met by their host families at International Place (390 E. 9th Street, Claremont, CA 91711) on Monday, August 13. Please make sure to view the guidelines of the CFIS Host Family Program.
