Registration

 In an effort to create a meaningful and personal experience for you, enrollment is limited.  Applications are requested and admission decisions are made on a rolling basis. All applications must be submitted by October 2, 2015 for consideration. 

Applicants will be notified of decisions by October 26, 2015.  Registration information will be sent out with acceptance notifications. Registration includes the following meals: three breakfasts and two lunches. Dinners are on indivual cost.

Registration as a member is based on individual membership status. If you are employed by a college or university that is an institutional member, you can join as an individual member at the $75 rate. If your institution is NOT a member, then you will need to join at the associate affiliate rate of $242 and then you can pay the individual member rate for conference registration. This gives you the conference registration and a year of membership for less than the non-member registration fee. Visit the Membership section of the NASPA website to learn about membership types.

Cancellation Policy:
Refunds will be given for cancellations, received in writing by December 6, 2015, less a $50.00 processing fee.

With prior approval, anyone registered but who cannot attend may send a substitute. Substitution information must come in writing from the registered participant. The membership status of the substitute must be the same as the registrant in order to have the same registration fee applied. Additional charges may apply if the membership status is not the same.
