Registration FAQs

When do I register for Reunions?

The sooner, the better! Classmates can register at the regular rate until April 16, 2011, at which point the registration system will be closed for processing.

The online registration system is where to start the process.

How much does it cost?

For adults (above age 21):

  • $225 per adult, until January 15, 2011
  • $285 per adult, January 16, 2011 through April 16, 2011
  • $305 per adult, at the door

For children:

  • $35 per child aged 2-20
  • $0 per infant under age 2

What does my registration get me?

Your registration fee covers class meals for three days, unlimited drinks, costumes and entertainment for the entire weekend, as well as paying for the student crew. We know that money may be tight this year, so we have done our best to keep costs down while still ensuring a fun weekend for everyone.

Does my registration fee include housing?

No, housing is charged separately from your registration fee. Dormitory housing is available at a cost of $110-135 per bed for the weekend (depending on location). This price is for the whole weekend, not per night. If you would like to request dormitory housing, you will need to do so during registration. For more information on housing, please see Travel and Housing.

How was the registration cost determined?

We realize that our registration prices are more expensive than registration for our 5th, but we have kept prices well below last year’s 10th prices.  There are several factors contributing to the overall cost.  First, since our 5th, the University changed the pricing scheme for Reunions attendance, making Reunions free for all non-major classes.  As a result, in exchange for providing free Reunions attendance for the past four years, we must shoulder the cost of those satellite-class attendees at our major reunion.  In addition, we received per-attendee revenue from our satellite classes (in particular, the 1st reunion, which is as big as other major reunions) at our 5th, providing additional funds.  At our 10th, we have to make up the cost of these lost revenue streams. Finally, there have been increases in both fixed and variable costs for the class in general and for Reunions specifically (such as website, costumes, food, student-crew wages, contributions to University alumni support).

What if I can’t afford to attend reunions?

Please see the Reunions FAQ (3rd item down) for the financial assistance policy and info on requesting assistance.

How do I register myself and a guest?

Using the online registration system, each classmate can purchase one “ticket” per attendee that they want to register.  Each ticket will have information for that attendee, for example, their name or their costume size.

Start by purchasing a Class Member ticket and provide information for yourself.  Once you have finished entering your information, you may register additional guests or family members by clicking the “Add Registrant” button on the third page of the registration form.  You will be asked to fill out the entire form (including preferences for meals, costume sizes, etc.) for each registrant.

When you are finished, the charges for all of the tickets you have created will be aggregated at checkout.  The tickets will not become actual registrations until you complete the checkout process.

Can I make my own reservation now, and add extra tickets later?

Yes.  You can reenter the site to add additional tickets any time before April 16, 2011.

Can I make changes to my registration after it has been completed?

Yes.  You can reenter the site to add additional tickets (e.g., to register a guest or child) or to revise an existing registration (e.g., to order additional costume components or update meal preferences) any time before April 16, 2011.  The system will accept payment for any additional charges.

If you would like to cancel your reservation or make changes that will result in a negative balance, please email [email protected] with an explanation of the change you want to make and follow the instructions you receive instead of using the online system directly.

What if I have questions or special needs for meals/costumes/housing?

Sections of the registration form have text boxes for any questions or concerns you may have.  Or, you can email the Registration Chairs or the appropriate Reunions Committee member and they will be able to get you any information you may need.

If I cancel or revise my registration, can I receive a refund?

Registration fees are 75% refundable before April 16, 2011.  NO REGISTRATION FEES WILL BE REFUNDED AFTER APRIL 16, 2011. You must agree to accept the terms of this refund policy before completing checkout. Housing fees are non-refundable, but if you are unable to attend you may designate another classmate to use any beds you have reserved.

If I navigate away from the registration page before completing and paying for my registration, will my information be saved?

No.  The system will not save any information unless the reservation is confirmed and paid for.  Any tickets that have not been purchased through the PayPal processing system will have to be re-entered from the beginning.

Can I pay for my registration with a check?

Yes.  If you would like to pay for your registration by check, please contact [email protected] instead of using the online system directly.

Do I need a PayPal account to complete registration?

No.  We use PayPal as the online system for processing payments, but you can choose to use an existing PayPal account or bill the charges to a credit card without using or signing up for a PayPal account.  This is similar to how you pay your class dues.

How was the early-bird deadline determined?

It’s our way of saving costs.  We can take advantage of lower, current-year prices on behalf of early-bird registrants, and we can pass that advantage on to the registrants.

What do I do if my spouse/partner/guest is a member of another class?

If  your guest chooses to register through the Class of 2001, then s/he will  have access to every part of the 10th reunion activities. If your guest registers through his or her class, then s/he will not receive a  costume or be able to attend Class of 2001 meals except Friday night dinner (purchased a la carte).
