Can I request my roommate?
If you would like to request a roommate for your session, you can do this during the registration process.
Is there a wait list for sessions?Yes, we do have wait lists! If you create an application in our registration portal you can select any session. You will then automatically be added to the corresponding wait lists with no need to make a payment. If a seat becomes available, you will be emailed immediately with a time-sensitive link to accept and pay for the available seat.
Are vaccines mandatory for students, staff, and faculty during the in-person sessions?
COVID-19 vaccines are not mandatory for Student Conference attendance.
What happens if someone tests positive for a contagious illness?
In the event of an illness – including COVID-19 – the Summit healthcare team will quarantine, confirm, respond, and, if necessary, isolate the impacted student or staffer. Of course, we will communicate with family members, and strive to handle any positive cases with compassion, care, and concern.
What is being done to ensure the safety of my student during their session?
All staff, students, and guests of Summit will be required to wear a Summit lanyard. Our staff is highly aware of who is coming and going in the classroom and interacting with students.
Is there medical staff onsite during the two-week conference?
YES, medical staff is always onsite. This year we have strengthened our team to include RNs. With new procedures in place to monitor students to ensure their safety and well-being, you can be confident that students will be cared for by highly trained professionals.Back to Top

In-Person & Online Student Conference Refund Policy Cancellation requests must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The $195 deposit for in-person and $95 deposit for online are non-refundable. A full refund (including deposit) will be provided for cancellation due to extenuating circumstances (severe illness, death in the family, etc.) though documentation will be required. In all other cases, all funds besides the deposit can be refunded as long as the request is received at least 23 days before the session start date.
Session Cancellation Policy
If we are forced to cancel a session while it is ongoing, we will give a prorated refund based on the amount paid for the session and the amount of time remaining in the session.
For example, in 2022, we had to cancel a session early because of COVID that was only 75% complete, so we refunded families 25% of the amount they paid.
