Registration Policies

Accessibility / Special Needs

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

Any attendee requiring accommodation(s) in order to participate in NerdNation must complete a special needs request by March 23, 2015. Specific requests can also be made via email at convention@ptk.org or by phone at 601.984.3530.

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.

Confirmation

The individual submitting Convention registrations will receive an email confirmation within one to two business days of submitting a registration.

Duplicate Registrations

Phi Theta Kappa cannot be responsible for duplicate registrations. If you submit a duplicate registration in error, you must request a refund (refund fees apply).

Payment

Payment is required at the time of registration. Accepted forms of payment include American Express, Visa, MasterCard or Discover; college purchase order or check. Payments by college purchase order or check must be received by Phi Theta Kappa within 30 days of submitting the registration.

Photographic Release

When submitting registrations, the individual submitting registrations will be asked to indicate agreement with the Society's Photographic Release for all persons registered. This allows Phi Theta Kappa's audio visual and still photography professionals to film and photograph Convention activities for on-site airing and future promotions.

Refund Request

The deadline for submitting a refund request is March 23, 2015, and no additional requests will be accepted after this date. Refunds cannot be issued on-site at the NerdNation Registration Booth. Refund requests submitted by the March 23 deadline will be processed after May 1. Submit Refund Request
