Program Evaluations

Program evaluations are one of the many reasons why CIEE programs are so successful at delivering valuable professional development and cultural exchange opportunities. They also serve as way for both CIEE and the U.S. Department of State to ensure that J-1 exchange programs meet the needs of participants.

Please note: Program evaluations are required. Failure to complete these evaluations will result in the termination of your program.

how to complete

CIEE will email you with links and instructions for completing evaluations. Each evaluation is comprised of two separate online questionnaires: one to be completed by you; the other to be completed by your host organization supervisor. This provides two independent points of view that can be used to assess the success of your program and to improve the quality of all CIEE programs.

IMPORTANT: Be sure to provide a valid email address when registering for the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). You must contact CIEE at 1-888-268-6245 to register.

There will be two evaluations during the program – one at the program’s midpoint and one at the program's conclusion. It is important that each evaluation be completed and returned on time. They are a U.S. Department of State requirement of the J-1 Visa Exchange Visitor Program.

Of course! CIEE welcomes direct communications from participants and host organizations. We want to know what is working well for you, what could be improved, and how we can be better at delivering the cultural exchange and support you expect from us. Feel free to contact CIEE via email or call us at 1-888-268-6245.
