Program Evaluations

Program evaluations ensure a quality internship experience

One reason that CIEE Internship USA is so successful at delivering the best possible professional development and cultural exchange experience is the program evaluation. This powerful tool is a way for both CIEE and the U.S. Department of State to make certain that J-1 exchange programs are meeting objectives.

Evaluations are comprised of two separate online questionnaires: one to be completed by you and the second to be completed by your host organization supervisor. This provides two independent points of view that can be used to assess the success of your program and to improve the quality of all CIEE programs. Shortly before your evaluations are due, CIEE will email you with links and instructions for completing the evaluation questionnaires.

There will be two evaluations during the program – one at the program’s midpoint and one at the program's conclusion. It’s important that they be completed and returned on time, because they’re a U.S. Department of State requirement of the Visa Exchange Visitor Program. You should make sure you provide a valid email address when you register for the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). For questions about the process, please contact CIEE via email. Failure to compete the evaluation on time could result in withdrawal from the program. Be sure to complete your evaluations on time.

We also welcome your direct feedback

CIEE also welcomes direct communications from participants and host organizations. We want to know what’s working well for you, what could be improved, and how we can be better at delivering the cultural exchange and support you expect from us. Feel free to contact CIEE via email or call us at 1-888-268-6245.
