1. What's the difference between a "registration code" and a "discount code?"
A "registration code" is the code you need to start the registration process for your correct registration pathway- whether you are an individual, student, university affiliate member, etc. It is entered on the first page of the registration process. The "registration code" automatically makes the proper adjustments to your registration fee and in most cases you can ignore the "discount code" box.
Common registration codes:
Individual attendee- INDIVIDUAL
Student attendee- STUDENT
University Affiliate- please contact your university affiliate representative (see question # 5).
A "discount code" is unfortunately an item that is unremovable from our registration process. You can ignore this box (that appears on the final page of registration) unless specifically instructed otherwise.
2. I need to pay for multiple people's registration on my credit card. Is there a way to register multiple people at once?
Yes! On the page that follows the agenda items selection page you will see a page with the people you have begun registering. There is a button for "add person" that will allow you to register another individual. You will need to enter their contact information, proper registration code, select the sessions they will attend, etc. Each person registered will receive a separate confirmation email and will have the ability to change their contact information and sessions for which they are registered.
3. I noticed that there are new sessions being added and I'd like to change which one I signed up for. How do I modify my registration?
Follow the link to register (above if available) for the conference. Below the request for your name, email, etc. is a link that says "Already registered?Click here." Follow the link and enter the required information including your confirmation number (this can be found in your confirmation email or you may also click the link on that page to have it re-emailed). To change any personal information, navigate to the desired page by clicking "Next" at the bottom of the page, being sure to select "Next" or "Finish" to save any modifications. To change your session options, re-select the session you are currently registered for as well as a new, different session you wish to participate in (two boxes will be checked.) Be sure to click "Next" or "Finish" when applicable to save your changes.
4. My registration failed, what happened?
Most of the failed registrations are caused by problems with a credit card. Please try the same credit card again and if it fails again please try an alternative card. If that continues to fail or you do not have access to an alternate card please contact email@example.com. Please note that if your registration fails the registration process cancels, your information is removed from the system, and your credit card will consequently not be charged twice.
5. I am a University Affiliate Member, who do I contact to receive the complimentary registration code?
Please contact your University Affiliate Representative (a list of current members and their representatives can be found here). To receive more information regarding your University Affiliate payment status, number of complimentary registrations, and University Affiliate Representative information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. I am a University Affiliate Member but I don't see my school listed on the registration pages. Why is this?
The registration site will only allow Universities that NCSE has received a membership payment for complete the registration process. If your school is not listed it probably means we have not received your membership dues yet. For more information please contact email@example.com.
7. What is the discount for non-profit registrants and how do I receive this discount?
The discount for non-profit registrants is $395 for three days. You receive this by sending proof of your organization’s non-profit 501(c)(3) status to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once proof of your non-profit status is confirmed NCSE will send you the non-profit registration code. This registration code must be entered in the “Registration Code” box after being prompted to enter your name and email address. Once the registration code is entered, the discount is automatically taken out from that point on. There is no need to worry about additional "discount codes".
8. Who is eligible for the non-profit registrant rate?
Anyone who is employed full time at a non-profit organization that has proved its non-profit 501(c)(3) status to NCSE. Once the registration code is received at that organization, anyone who is employed there full time may use the code.
9. Where can I find information on hotel options in the DC area? Are there discounted rooms specifically for conference participants?
For more information on hotel and travel options in Washington, DC please visit our travel and lodging page. There are a reserved number of rooms secured at the JW Marriott on Pennsylvania Avenue. Information on how to register for these rooms can be found at the end of your confirmation email as well as online.
10. Does NCSE assist with travel and lodging?
Unfortunately NCSE is unable to provide financial assistance for registration, travel, and lodging fees. Please visit our Get Employer Support webpage for suggestions on how to receive employer support for your conference attendance.
