Typical Questions From Students
Q Is the abstract submission fee deducted from the registration fee?
A No! The abstract submission fee is a fee for the service of processing the 800-1000 abstracts we accept via the on-line abstract submission process. Before the year 2000, the ACSP used to return the $25 fee as a deduction from the registration fee — not any more.
Q Do I need to register for the Awards Lunch?
A The Faculty FULL Registration and Student FULL Registrations INCLUDE a reception ticket and a ticket to the Awards Lunch. Please DO NOT register for individual event tickets unless you are bringing a guest.
Q How do I get a receipt for my registration fees?
A The on-line registration system will automatically email you a confirmation of your registration. Payment receipts will be enclosed in each attendee's registration envelope on-site. If you must have something sooner, please contact email@example.com and we'll fax or email it to you.
Q What do I do if I lose my event tickets?
A The ACSP Registration desk has record of your paid registration. They will put your name on a list and you will need to personally check with the attendant at the door of the event to let them know of your arrival.
Q I can't attend the reception or awards lunch. Can I donate my tickets to a student?
A Absolutely. Donate to the student of your choice, or you can leave the tickets on the bulletin boards in the Book Fair for students to pick up.
Q I'm retired faculty. Which registration do I pay?
A There is now a Retired Faculty registration rate on the registration form. It is considered a full registration which includes one reception ticket and one ticket to the awards luncheon as well as access to all breaks, sessions and programming.
Q How to I get AICP Credit for sessions I attended at the Conference?
A The Association pre-registers conference sessions with the AICP using the preliminary conference program. Sessions pre-approved will be indicated in the preliminary and on-site program. After the conference, the ACSP must formally submit all the sessions once again to the AICP. With final approval, the ACSP will publish availability of credits using the member listserve. Attendees then use their own access to the AICP system to register for credit.
Q Is there less expensive housing available?
A Likely in good-sized cities there is other housing available to meet your needs, however we must encourage all attendees to stay at the host hotel to meet the organization's contractual obligation to the host hotel.
Q Is there a place to post my vitae?
A Yes, the Job Bank will be open during the conference. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and send your resume to have it posted to the on-line bank, as well as the on-site bank where job opportunities are posted.
Q Can students go to lunch if those who purchased tickets don't show up?
A Faculty willing to donate tickets will donate them in baskets found at the conference registration desk. Check there periodically for available tickets. Otherwise, without a ticket there is no entry.
Q Is there assistance provided for student travel?
A Different kinds of awards are detailed at www.acsp.org. Some are paper awards which include full student registration fees as part of the award, others are strictly travel awards. Review the site for applicable deadlines.
