Spring Course Registration
Au Pairs holding a J-1 Visa in the United States are required to complete at least six semester hours (or their equivalent) of academic credit at an accredited U.S. post-secondary institution before completion of their initial au pair assignment. Long Island University, based in New York, is accredited by the Middle States Commission of Higher Education. LIU's School of Professional Studies offers Courses for Au Pairs throughout the year during the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters. Courses are available either online or at our LIU Post and LIU Brooklyn campuses. We are a non-credit program and quote our courses in class hours. Generally, many Au Pair agencies count 12 hours of class time as equal to 1 credit. We recommend that au pairs confirm with their Local Child Care Coordinator or their Au Pair Agency how many credit hours they need to complete their educational requirement.
