FAQ



What does it cost?

The registration fee will vary based on registration type. This year, our student fee is $20.00 as we brought in a big-name speaker. Student speaker tickets are free and will be made available 02/08/19 after the 25 student speakers have been selected by the SCEPT team. In addition to admission to the keynote, most activities and snacks will be provided free of charge. We will also provide dinner (Friday night), breakfast, lunch and snacks (Saturday) and breakfast (Sunday).

If students have specific dietary needs, they will need to let us know in the notes section of their registration. Students/schools should plan to build in transportation costs to and from the conference, as well as money to purchase food for Friday afternoon, as well as for dinner on Saturday evening.

Where should we stay?

OPTION 1: We have a hotel block set up with The Courtyard by Marriott Columbia Downtown at USC. The hotel is within walking distance from the conference location. Please note:The hotel has included complementary self parking and wifi as part of the conference for your convenience.
