After returning to the U.S., IUHPFL alumni are required to fill out an exit survey about their program experience. This survey helps IUHPFL evaluate the instructors, host family experience and various other aspects of the program. Sometime in September and once students have completed the survey, students will receive a final packet.
This packet will include the following items:
- Optional program journal the class may have assembled
- An IUHPFL Diploma marking the completion of the program
Final Student Evaluations, completed by Program Instructors, will be emailed to the students, guardians, and students' high school language teachers.
At School and Beyond
Once alumni return to their high school, they are required to support their foreign language teacher's classroom and department to the best of their ability.
Alumni are also asked to promote IUHPFL to future generations of students. They may spread the word by sharing their experience about IUHPFL utilizing the IUHPFL talking points and including personal images and/or videos. They may also volunteer with IUHPFL, especially if they consider attending Indiana University. For volunteer opportunities please contact IUHPFL at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many IUHPFL alumni choose to attend Indiana University. It is only natural to build on the experience of an IUHPFL summer abroad and consider a college-level overseas experience.

Indiana University's Office of Overseas Study offers more than 250 international programs in 17 languages and 52 countries. Once students enroll at IU, a visit with the helpful Overseas Study advisors will be an exciting opportunity to learn about spending a summer, semester or academic year abroad. The Office of Overseas Study is located — in the same building as IUHPFL — on the first and second floor of the Leo R. Dowling International Center.
