Registration

Announcements

Honors Institute attendees now have two options when registering -- 1.) our traditional All-Inclusive Rate and 2.) our new, reduced Commuter Rate.

Either option you choose will give you a passport to an adventure of a lifetime at the 2016 Honors Institute, June 20-25, at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Space is limited to just 500 participants, and filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so don't delay.


Important Information for All

Participants are responsible for the cost of any meals, trips, tours and admission fees on Thursday’s R&R Day. Travel to and from Winston-Salem and airport transfers are not included in the registration fee.

At the time Honors Institute registration is submitted online, the registrant will receive an email confirming registration.

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 ($50 fee applies).

Registrations are not considered compete and space is not reserved until payment is received. Registrants may supply a check number or purchase order number or credit card using the online registration.

Requests for refunds of registration fees must be submitted by May 27, 2016, using the online Refund/Cancellation 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 May 27, 2016, 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 2016 Honors Institute at any time upon request by email.

Phi Theta Kappa is committed to providing equal access for all participants of Honors Institute.

Any attendee requiring accommodation(s) in order to participate in Honors Institute must complete a special needs request as part of the registration process by May 27, 2016. Specific requests can also be made via email or by calling 800.946.9995, ext. 3530.

Reasonable dietary, physical, cultural or religious accommodations will be provided upon request if Phi Theta Kappa is given adequate time to secure the requested services, the services are available within the requested time period, and the requested accommodation does not result in an undue hardship as defined by the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) (“action requiring significant difficulty or expense”), or as otherwise limited by ADA.

Background

The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. It sets forth minimum requirements for accessibility of facilities to ensure that someone with a disability has the same access to programs and services, public accommodations, employment, transportation, and telecommunication. The ADA requires the removal of physical and communication barriers to allow someone with a disability an equal opportunity to participate. While there is no way to explain all aspects of this law within the scope of this document, it is important to consider the spirit in which this law was written and make every effort to remove barriers and prevent discrimination.

Transportation, and any associated expenses, to and from events on campus is the responsibility of the attendee. If special assistance is required, please contact by email.

Participants must bring with them to the Honors Institute insurance information, prescription medications and any necessary medical equipment.

Wake Forest University has no responsibility for the conduct of any program or activity offered by Phi Theta Kappa. Wake Forest functions only as a site for the conference and will provide many of the services specified for the conference such as facilities, food and housing . The University assumes no responsibility for any damage, injury or loss to any person or property, from any cause whatsoever except to the extent such liability results from the sole negligence of Wake Forest.
