Conference Policies and Procedures
The NRHC is happy to provide a discount for large group registrations. Every 10th and 20th registration is free (students and faculty included). To receive the discount, all registrations must be completed at the same time by selecting your registrations below. Any Minority Scholarships awarded will not count against the volume discount – recipients of the Minority Scholarship and their honors directors will be notified of the award by Monday, February 27th, to facilitate registration by the early bird deadline of March 6th.
Limited Virtual Option
While our conference is an in-person event, the Executive Board will consider requests for virtual presentations. Member institutions or individual presenters that are unable to attend in-person can request virtual accommodations. See the 2023 Conference Information page for further details about the limited virtual option. Programs and/or presenters intending to utilize the virtual option must notify NRHC via email at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 3rd. Virtual presentations will be approved on a case-by-case basis. Please note the registration cost for virtual or in-person presenters is the same. The virtual option will be limited and likely scheduled for two weeks prior to the in-person event.
Health and Safety Protocol
Registration for NRHC 2023 may require proof of Covid-19 vaccination uploaded to the registration system and/or a negative Covid-19 PCR or rapid test. NRHC reserves the right to adjust health and safety guidelines to correspond with CDC recommendations. In the event that proof of vaccination or a Covid-19 test are required, failure to produce the required documents may result in removal from the conference without refund.
Registrations cancelled within 24 hours will receive a full refund, less a $20 fee per registration. Send your immediate cancellation request to email@example.com with registration ID number(s).
After this 24-hour period, all registrations are final. Therefore, members institutions are encouraged to find replacement attendees for registrants.
