Thank you for helping United Studies comply with government safety standards by agreeing to a background check! Please read the following before clicking the link below:

  • Please use a computer, not a smartphone, to click the link below and complete the subsequent agreement. The background check will not run if the form is completed on a smartphone.
  • Background checks must be conducted every year for all host family members over 18 who live in the home either full-time or part-time. This includes families who have hosted United Studies exchange students in the past, even as recently as the previous year. It also includes host family members who are away at college but come home during breaks.
  • United Studies’ background check does not include a credit check. The organization that conducts background checks for United Studies offers some background checks that do include credit checks, and as such their website may contain language referring to that. However, background checks being conducted on United Studies participants do not include a credit check.
