WHAT IS EARLY REGISTRATION?
Early Registration, previously known as pre-registration, gives schools the opportunity to sign up and reserve seats at NHSMUN. Early registration begins in June and is particularly helpful for schools that require a guarantee of acceptance in order to secure administrative approval to plan their trip, or for schools that otherwise begin their planning early in the cycle. Payment is not required in order to reserve seats during early registration.
Early registration concludes in September, and on October 1, all schools are asked to re-confirm their group size and proceed to request country and committee assignments. Early registration, while strongly recommended, is optional. Schools that do not sign up during early registration can simultaneously reserve seats and submit requests for country and committee assignments from October 1-15. We encourage schools to reserve seats as early in the process as possible. Should you have any questions or require special accommodations with the registration timeline, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are there planning considerations being made in light of COVID-19? Please see below for more information about COVID-19.
Can I change my group size after I submit my registration? Yes, absolutely. You may change your group size after you register. Nearly all groups fluctuate in size, often until November or December. You are welcome to change your group size as needed.
Can I choose which session (March 5-8 or March 10-13) I want to attend? When you fill out the registration form, you will be asked to share your session preference. Please choose as you wish, as the programming for both sessions is the same. If you do not have a preference, we will assign you to whichever of the two conference sessions allows for the assignment of your higher-ranked country or countries.
When will I be able to make hotel reservations? Rooms have been set aside for NHSMUN attendees. Starting in September, you will be able to reserve your rooms through a dedicated NY Hilton reservations manager. Please do not attempt to make reservations until you receive the instructions in September, as they must be serviced through the dedicated group manager.
Do I need to pay anything in order to register? No, you are not required to pay any fees in order to reserve your seats during early registration.
How do I know my submission is accepted? You will receive a confirmation email detailing your early registration, your reserved seats, as well as the subsequent steps in the process. Additionally, our conference team will always be available to answer any questions that you may have.
COVID-19 and NHSMUN 2021
We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation, and the health and safety of our students, teachers, and staff will always remain our top priority. We are currently planning to hold NHSMUN as scheduled from March 5-8, 2021 (Session I) and March 10-13, 2021 (Session II). We have already begun working with our venues and suppliers on policies and procedures relating to COVID-19, including new standards that range from cleanliness and disinfection to meeting room capacities or social distancing of other high-traffic areas. Ultimately, it is widely known that government laws, health guidelines, and state or local regulations will continue to evolve in the weeks ahead. We will continue to monitor all of these guidelines and regulations in conjunction with local authorities. Given the uncertainty as the COVID-19 situation continues to get resolved around the world, NHSMUN 2021 will offer a flexible refund policy. Specifically, if NHSMUN 2021 is cancelled, all conference and hotel fees will be refunded, regardless of date.
Conference registration, preparation, and planning will take place normally, and we encourage schools to sign up and reserve their seats at any time. With the knowledge that the COVID-19 situation is gradually being resolved and that precautions are being planned on all ends, we will continue to monitor, plan, and protect the health and safety of all of our participants. If things change and it becomes necessary to cancel NHSMUN 2021, our flexible refund policy will ensure that schools and families do not lose the money that they have paid. Likewise, we are equally appreciative of the time and energy that students put into their research and preparation, and we are exploring contingency plans for a scenario where NHSMUN 2021 cannot be held in-person but instead can be moved to a virtual platform. For the time being, we are enthusiastically planning to host NHSMUN 2021 as scheduled, and we are greatly looking forward to it. Please contact us at email@example.com should you have any questions.
