About this Event

About AICUP on the Hill Day

AICUP on the Hill Day is an annual event which allows students from our member institutions to advocate for independent, nonprofit institutions of higher education with members of the General Assembly. It is a great opportunity to remind legislators that many of their constituents attend independent, nonprofit colleges and universities because they provide excellent educational opportunities and experiences.

Advocacy day primarily focuses on funding for the PHEAA Grants to Students program, the Ready to Succeed Scholarship program, and Institutional Assistance Grants, in order for more low and middle-income students to be able to benefit from the financial help they provide.

We look forward to seeing all of our member representatives for another successful AICUP on the Hill Day!

Please note: We will be at the registration table beginning at 8:00 am. Please feel free to join us anytime between 8:00-10:00 am to check-in and receive your materials!

Registration

We have activated the Group Registration for this event, so if multiple coordinators need access to register students, please consider making a group registration instead of an individual. (If you make a group registration, the first person will create the group and then the others will simply need to search for it. Click "Register - As a Group", then type in your Institution Name). PLEASE, ONLY ONE REGISTRATION PER SCHOOL- You can add or remove as many students as necessary within one registration. Additionally, you can make as many changes to your registration as needed. If you are the only coordinator who will be registering students, then using the "Individual" option during registration is fine - You can still add as many students as needed.

Logistics and More Information

We will send out a map of parking garages in a follow-up email to coordinators when we get closer to the day. If you are staying overnight at the hotel (information below), you can valet park for $20/vehicle/day.

AICUP will provide a light continental breakfast for our students and coordinators as well as a lunch voucher for the Capitol cafeteria on the day of the event (value of $10). We will also distribute all the written materials students will need, but feel free to bring school-specific materials or something to leave behind that represents your institution.

Transportation and lodging, as well as setting up the meetings with legislators, is the responsibility of the participating school. Please plan to attend the 10:00 am rally on the Capitol Rotunda steps unless you have meetings scheduled during that time.
