Frequently Asked Questions

What are the repercussions if an au pair does not complete their educational component?

◦    She/he will not be able to extend her/his program year

◦    She/he will not be an au pair in good standing with the program

◦    She/he will not have successfully completed the program

◦    She/he may be terminated from the program early

◦    She/he will not be eligible to participate in the repeat au pair program

What proof does Cultural Care require to show that an au pair finished their course(s)?

◦    Confirmation from the school that proves they completed the course and clearly mentions how many credits or hours the course(s) was worth. This can be in the form of a certificate, a letter from the teacher or a transcript from the school.

Does the au pair need to send in her certificates from school to Cultural Care in Boston?

◦    The au pair only needs to submit certificates to the Boston office if she/he would like to extend. If the au pair is not extending, it is enough to show the certificates to the LCC, who can then respond to the Program Completion Form they received when the au pair filled it out online.

How many courses is an au pair allowed to take?

◦    An au pair can take as many courses as long as they add up to at least 6 credits!

Can an au pair choose to count a course in classroom hours or credits?

◦    No. Cultural Care must count the course in the same way that the school does. Only if it is a non-credit course are we able to count the classroom hours.

How many credits is a CEU worth?

◦    1 CEU (continuing education unit) is equal to 1 credit.

If an au pair is at the end of his/her year and has completed 5 credits worth of courses can they still extend?

◦     They cannot extend unless they are able to complete one more credit, or 12 classroom hours in the case of a non-credit course, 30 days before the last day of their first year.

Can an au pair take a course that begins in their first year but ends in their second year?

◦    The Department of State requires that they must complete the 6 credits prior to the end of their 11th month; therefore they must find a course that will end no later than 30 days before the end of her/his first year. If the 30 day deadline falls on a weekend, the final deadline might be a few days earlier, so if there is an au pair who would like to extend and whose class ends very close to the 30 day mark, please contact the Operations department at 800-448-5753 or aupair.operations@culturalcare.com to ensure that the class ends on time and she/he is eligible to extend.

Can an au pair carry extra credits from their first year over to their extension program term?

◦    Yes, if an au pair has completed more than 6 credits at the end of their initial program year, the excess credits or hours can be applied toward the educational requirement for the extension program term. Proper documentation of these additional credits/hours (transcript, certificate, etc) will need to be maintained by the au pair and submitted to the LCC at the completion of the extension term to serve as proof that the credits/hours were completed.

Can an au pair make up for missing credits from their first year in their extension program term?

◦    No, au pairs must complete 6 credits prior to the end of the 11th month of their first year in order to extend their program.
