Rates & Registration

When does registration open?

Registration and summit hotel reservations open on October 15th, 2019.

How do I register?

Registrations are made online through the summit registration page.  If you have any problems with registration, please carefully read the information on this page.  If you’re still having problems, please send an email to sustainability@utrgv.edu and we’ll see if we can help you solve the problem.

What proof of student status is required to register at the student rate?

When registering for the summit online, you will be asked to provide the email address of your academic advisor.  Advisors will be contacted to confirm your student status.  If you already provided a letter from your advisor when you submitted your poster, no further confirmation is needed.  If you register onsite, you will be asked to present a current student ID at that time.  If you do not have a student ID or your student ID does not show the current year/semester, then please be sure to bring a letter from your advisor.

Note: The information above is required to obtain the student rate when registering for the summit.
