*APIC Student Registration Policy

APIC values its student members and wants to encourage high levels of participation in the Annual Conference from students of infection prevention. As such, APIC has developed a policy for student registration rates. To be eligible for the student rate, a person must be enrolled full-time (12+ credit hours) at accredited institution and be pursuing an associates or bachelor’s degree. Proof of enrollment is required to receive this rate, and those seeking this rate must submit the following:

  • A valid student ID card (not your APIC membership card)


  • A current transcript indicating full-time status. The transcript must match the information on the student ID.


  • A current letter from a principal, dean, registrar, or advisor written on official letterhead that indicates full-time status

Please note that tuition statements or credit card payments will not be accepted as proof of student status.

Cancellation Policy

All registration cancellations and refund requests must be made in writing by May 11, 2018. An 80 percent refund of conference fees will be given for cancellations received by that date. No refunds will be granted for requests date-stamped after May 11, 2018. Submit all requests to APIC Annual Conference registration via email at annual@apic.org. APIC regrets that refunds will not be given for no-shows. All requests for exceptions to the cancellation/refund policy must be submitted in writing by the registrant with appropriate documentation no later than June 29, 2018. After that time, no refund considerations will be made. Substitutions within this program are gladly accepted. A substitution of your full registration is permitted prior to the conference by submitting a written request to annual@apic.org. Onsite transfers are not permitted. Only one substitution is permitted per original registrant. The individual submitting the substitution request is responsible for all financial obligations (any balance due) associated with that substitution before the change can be made. Badge sharing, splitting, and reprints are strictly prohibited.
