SDI Registration
Registration is $99/person (both students and staff attending). Please note that student ambassadors must have a professional staff member in attendance with them. Additionally, professional staff members must be bringing student ambassadors in order to attend. Each institutional group is allowed to register with a maximum of four student ambassadors so as to allow room for as many member institutions to attend as possible. Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. If you do not yet know the name of your attending ambassadors, you can reserve their spots by entering a generic term such as “Student Ambassador” and then submit the correct names at a later date. Please choose the number of student attendees carefully, though: no refunds will be offered should you choose to bring fewer students than registered, and we might not have space available to add more students later. Please contact civsaHQ@civsa.org with any technical questions.
