How can I cancel my registration?
Cancel your registration by emailing us at email@example.com before February 29, 2024, to be refunded the value of your ticket less a $100 cancelation fee. We are unable to offer refunds for cancellations after February 29, 2024. However, at any point before the conference, you may transfer your full registration to another person at no cost by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can I register a group?
During registration, you will be able to add multiple guests in one transaction. Groups of four or more Campus Compact members that are registered in a single transaction will be eligible for a 10% discount on Member Rate tickets. All guests registered as part of a group must be from the same institution. Use code "Group" at checkout to activate the discount.
Do I need to sign up for specific sessions?
No. Registered attendees may attend any general session, breakout session, or opportunity listed in the conference schedule. Seating at sessions will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, so we recommend arriving early. Pre-conference sessions and other special opportunities will require separate tickets, which will be available as part of our normal registration process. Don't worry—you can always register today and add extra tickets later. We'll be sure to keep you posted as new opportunities become available.
How do you determine the cost of registration?
We work hard to keep the cost of registration as low as possible. We set a goal to break even on conference costs by pursuing ambitious fundraising goals to subsidize conference costs. We are always looking for sponsors & exhibitors to contribute to help us keep our conference as budget-friendly as possible. If you have sponsorship ideas or opportunities you would like to share, please contact us at email@example.com.
Are scholarships available?
We do not currently offer scholarships for free registration. We are proud to offer lower, more affordable rates to students, AmeriCorps members, and community partners who may not have conference funding or professional development budgets.
We also seek opportunities from sponsors that may enable us to offer scholarships for free admission in the future. In the event that scholarships become available, we will send that information out to our mailing list.
What discounts are available?
Discounted admission will be available to all faculty and staff at Campus Compact member institutions. To find out if you are a member, contact Natalie Furlett at firstname.lastname@example.org. Discounted admission is also available for groups of four or more from a Campus Compact member institution, students, AmeriCorps members, and community partners.
