Forms of Payment

To maximize savings, we recommend attendees to register and book accommodations early in order to qualify for the advance purchase rates. June 27th, 2012 is the last day to receive these prices. Full time students needing complete funding can get a personal loan. A short term loan provides students the financing to pay for registration, accompanying person packages, and additional registration items. Also, students can check with their college advisor in case their university has available grants or stipends for attending major related events.
