Attention Attendees Under Age 18

Washington University policy requires that individuals under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an advisor. Advisors attending with a minor under the age of 18 must successfully complete a fingerprint-based criminal background check. The Honors Institute registration of the minor student will not be processed until Washington University certifies that the advisor’s background check has been approved. This process may take up to four weeks from the time the background check is initiated. For questions, contact Rachael Reinagel, Washington University, Campus Services at 314.935.7626. The accompanying advisor will be housed in the student section in close proximity to the minor student’s door room. Begin the background check. Cost is $44.80.

Reserve space now, assign attendees' names later

Advisors, if you know the number of attendees from your chapter but not the names, submit an Honors Institute registration form using "TBA" for the First Name/Last Name fields on the registration form. Complete the sections for College Name, Chapter Name, and provide a method of payment.

When the actual names are known, notify us with a name, member ID, email address and emergency contact information to update your registration. The deadline for changes is May 30.


After a completed registration form has been submitted, the Honors Institute applicant will receive an email confirmation.

Duplicate Registrations

Please do not send duplicate registration forms (i.e. submitted online and mailed). If you submit a duplicate registration in error, you must request a refund.

Refund Requests

Requests for refunds of registration fees must be submitted in by June 2, 2014, using the online Refund Request Form. Refunds requested by that date will be processed less a $50 processing fee. Refunds will be processed after June 30 and cannot be issued on-site at the conference.

Refund requests after June 2, 2014, will not be accepted. Registrations may not be deferred to another year or applied to another Phi Theta Kappa conference or meeting.

Phi Theta Kappa will transfer a paid registration to another person for the 2014 Honors Institute at any time upon request by email.
