Payment

Only checks or money orders in U.S. dollars made payable to the Medieval Institute are accepted. Any checks or money orders sent in currencies other than U.S. dollars will be returned. All charges are due at the time of registration. Receipts are issued at the Congress.

Checks and money orders made out in an incorrect amount and illegible and incorrect credit card numbers hold up the registration process. Please sign your check and write in the current date. Post-dated checks cannot be accepted.

All who attend sessions, give papers or preside over sessions, or take part in panels, visit the exhibits, or otherwise attend the Congress and participate in its activities must register. The Congress Committee reserves the right to deny future participation in the Congress to those who do not register properly and further reserves the right to refer to the university’s collection services any unpaid bills.
