General Notes:

  1. At TLC centers where host families do not provide transportation, your director will assist you with other means of transportation.
  2. University housing costs, meal plans, and availability are subject to change during semester starts and during scheduled university breaks for such holidays as Christmas, Thanksgiving and Fall/Spring Breaks.
  3. At TLC-Charleston: 15 meals are provided per week during the school year, and 12 meals are provided per week during summer months (May 8th - August 12th, 2017).
  4. Estimates only for unfurnished apartments. Available at all locations.  Leases are typically for a minimum of one year.  Furnished apartments are an additional cost and based on availability.  Rent amount may vary in the range $600-$2,500.  Please contact your center of choice for details.
  5. It is recommended that housing is booked upon application or at least one session prior to arrival, whichever is greater. Housing availability is not guaranteed upon arrival if appropriate forms and fees were not submitted at least one session prior to arrival in order to secure housing reservation.  Students are responsible for reviewing the TLC website-based Homestay Policy along with completing the homestay application and paying the placement fee before homestay arrangement will be secured.  Once a student accepts a placement, verbally or in writing, the contract between that student and family begins and policies apply.
  6. Airport transfer cannot be secured until the completed airport transfer form, fees, and itinerary have been provided to the center.  The center reserves the right to deny transport assistance should the reservation not be paid and scheduled at least one week prior to student’s scheduled arrival. It is recommended to schedule airport transfer reservation at least two weeks prior to scheduled arrival.  If your flight is scheduled to arrive between the hours of 9pm and 7am, immediate housing check-in may not be permitted and you may be asked to secure a hotel for the evening of your arrival at your own expense. If you are requesting transfer services to airports not published as pick-up and drop-off destinations for TLC, TLC will provide the additional cost within the invoice. Please consult the Center Director in advance of purchasing tickets to confirm costs for transfer exceptions.
  7. The represented fee for airport transfer is one-way and per person.
