International Associate Membership


The purpose of the International Associate membership is to establish a method of communicating with overseas partners of CSIET listed organizations, to make sure they are up to date about CSIET standards and guidelines, and to seek methods of cooperation in order to implement CSIET standards in programs for American outbound students. All membership materials are provided in English only.


To be eligible for CSIET international membership, interested overseas international exchange programs must:

  • Be nominated for membership by a CSIET-listed organization
  • Agree to subscribe to CSIET standards
