Selecting Core and BP Students
Teams are asked to Community Place students who they commit to placing locally. These students must include a mix of genders and specified numbers of YES, CBYX, German, Thai, Italian, Japanese, and Chinese students. Teams are also allotted a limited number of Norwegian students and are encouraged to place a specific number of first-semester-only students. Your volunteer Hosting Coordinator and staff Team Development Specialist can tell you the specific goals and status of your team in meeting these numbers.
The Hosting Application Distribution Process outlines specific rules around selecting and placing students. The rules are not perfect but rather are intended to help make the process as fair as possible across strong and weak teams.
To determine if a particular student is eligible for Community Placement and/or WHEN s/he may become eligible, review the fields right next to the New Request button here:
You can also pull a list of students eligible to be community placed by using this Global Link filter:
At this time, Holds can not be placed on Community Placed students. Thus, the team must discuss internally how they will communicate when families are looking at specific CPd stus. Talk to your Hosting Coordinator and Hosting Programs Specialist (HPS) to learn how your team manages this locally.
Selecting FLEX, YES, and CB Students
FLEX, YES, and CBYX students are made Nationally Available initially and are released on a rolling basis. The applications are managed in the same way that Core applications are except that they will be a part of the Sponsored Programs Community Placement draft process.
