WHO IS ELIGIBLE?Click to Open
We are glad you asked! Most CIEE High School USA participants – whether you initially traveled on the J-1 or F-1 visa – are eligible to return to the U.S. on a second program. Exceptions include participants who received an ECA-sponsored grant administered by CIEE, such as CBYX, FLEX, or YES. If you received such a grant, you are ineligible to return on a second program.

CAN I ATTEND THE SAME SCHOOL?Click to Open
Due to industry regulations and policies specific to each partner school, attending the same high school for an additional year is not guaranteed. However, CIEE will work with you and your current school, host family, and local coordinator to see what options are available.
In the event that you cannot attend the same school, do not worry. We partner with over 110 schools across the U.S., and will work with you to find the best fit. Since we handle the regulatory and re-enrollment paperwork, as well as visa processing, the transition is easy.
WILL THE PROGRAM COST CHANGE?Click to Open
Students returning on another program will have to pay school tuition in addition to program fees. If your current program is on the J-1 visa, this will be an additional cost. If your current program is on the F-1 visa, you are already paying tuition; as a result, your costs will only change according to the specific program or school you choose.
