Considerations

Curfew

Students under 18 years of age cannot go out after 22:00 in accordance with CA law. Regardless of age, students should inform host families of their expected return time in order to be considerate.

Drinking and smoking

By California law, drinking and smoking are only permitted for adults over the age of 21. Also, bringing alcohol to San Diego’s beaches, promenades, and parks is prohibited by law.

Cash vs. credit card.

In America, it is often more common to pay for items by card. As such, it is suggested to keep a minimum amount of cash (<$100) in your wallet.

Staying in contact (phone options)

Those who stay over a month are advised to purchase a SIM card in the U.S.. Local carriers offer a variety of affordable SIM card options. If you have a mobile phone that is not SIM-free compliant, those with pocket Wi-Fi are encouraged to download social networking messaging services before traveling.
