On-site Registration will not be available for this year’s convention. Please register prior to departing for Columbus, preferably prior to the Early Registration Deadline.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty because of the pandemic and university responses for the fall, UCEA is continuing to offer reduced registration rates for the 2021 Convention. To help offset some of the costs we will be actively looking for Convention sponsors!

We are also offering a reduced rate for those who will be participating virtually. This will give access to all our online content, lived streamed sessions, and keynote speakers.

All presenting authors of accepted papers and all participants in accepted sessions (including session facilitators) are required to register and pay in full whether participating in-person or virtually.

Proof of vaccination is required for all attendees. Click here for FAQs about UCEA’s COVID-19 policy.

Registration for the Graduate Student Summit will be complimentary for all graduate attendees this year.

To simplify registration, we will only have two registration timeframes, rather than our regular four.

[Note: If we are able to resume more “normal” functioning in 2022, registration rates and deadlines are likely to return to usual levels.]


Early Registration Deadline: Sunday, October 24 at 11:59 EDT

Those who register early to attend the convention “in-person” will receive a thank you gift from UCEA. Supplies are limited so be sure to act quickly!

Registering before the Early Registration Deadline also ensures that you will receive a print program. Print programs will not be given to those that register after October 24 unless we have extras in the afternoon of November 13. 

For questions about registration or to pay by check, please email Karl Gildner, UCEA’s Convention and Events Manager, at
