Registration Policies

Customer Service

For questions about registration and housing, contact NASPA Customer Service at 877.277.2820 (Domestic) and 847.996.5820 (International) or email naspa@experient-inc.com.
Required Attendee Registration

All individuals attending the conference must pay a registration fee. All workshops and educational session presenters MUST be registered!

Substitutions

Substitutions are allowed by individuals within the same institution/company. Substitutions should have the same membership classification so that the payment is an even exchange transfer of payment. Please email your request for the substitute attendee to naspa@experient-inc.com.

Meals

Meals are NOT provided during the conference. Exhibit hall breaks may offer coffee or ice cream. Some institutions, knowledge committees, and other sponsored groups will choose to host receptions / meetings that may have food and beverage available but this is not guaranteed.

Registration Rate Deadlines

The deadlines that have been established for registration are POSTMARK deadlines.

Member Rate Qualifications

In order to qualify for member rates, you must have a current individual membership, valid through the 2020 NASPA Annual Conference. You should have your own individual ID number. You will NOT get the member rate by using your institutional ID number. If you receive the member rate and your membership lapses, but is not renewed within two weeks of your membership expiration date, the non-member rate will be assessed at the prevailing rate. Anyone whose membership is scheduled to expire should plan to renew their membership promptly, to avoid additional fees.

Student Rates

Student rates are for full-time member students only. Those who are employed full-time and are taking courses are not eligible for these rates.

Complimentary Faculty Registration

One faculty member per higher education/student affairs graduate preparation program can receive a complimentary registration to attend the 2020 NASPA Annual Conference. To see if you qualify to receive this rate, please contact NASPA's Membership Department at membership@naspa.org. Upon confirming your eligibility, you will receive a discount code to add to your online registration. 

International Attendees

If you are a non-U.S. attendee and you are registering for both the 2020 International Symposium and the 2020 NASPA Annual Conference, use the discount code INTSYM20 to receive $200 off of your Annual Conference registration fee.  

Press Registration

Complimentary Press registrations are available. The person asking for a press pass must be a credentialed journalist who works for a publication, news service, broadcast outlet or news internet site that is regularly issued, published primarily for the dissemination of news, and operates independently from any commercial, political, government or special interest. To request a complimentary press pass, please email press@naspa.org.

TPE Onsite Candidates

Individuals who register as a candidate for the TPE Onsite 2020 Event and also register for the 2020 NASPA Annual Conference will get a $25 discount off the published full conference registration rates for the NASPA conference. If you are a TPE candidate use the code TPECAN20 during the registration process for the NASPA conference when prompted. This discount code CANNOT be used by employers. All users of the discount code will be verified prior to the conference.

Guest Registration

Guest registrations can only be purchased in addition to a full registration. All guests must check-in at the registration desk onsite and will be identified with an appropriate name badge. A guest is defined as a spouse or significant other, friend, or relative who is not a member of NASPA, is not qualified to become a member, and does not work in a student-affairs-related occupation above the age of 12. Please note that there is also a guest registration fee for children between the ages of 5 – 12. There is no guest registration fee for those under 5 years old. The same policies apply to guest registrations for children. If you want to bring a guest, please provide their name and pay the registration fee during your online registration process.

A guest registration includes admission to the opening session, opening reception, featured speakers and closing session on Wednesday. Guests can attend "open evening receptions" (NOT the VPSA Reception or any "invite only" or "closed receptions"). Guest registrations DO NOT include pre-conference workshops or any educational sessions outside of the featured speakers mentioned above. 

Due to the nature of the professional educational programs, we recommend limiting children’s attendance in sessions to quiet infants and non-separating children. Space will be available at the back of room for individuals with babies and children. We ask that those with children be sensitive to any situation, including happy baby noises, as it may break the concentration of those attending the session. Your consideration of other attendees is truly appreciated.
