  • – Breakfast & lunch on Saturday

Deadline to register is TBD.

Payment will be requested at time of registration. Schools are able to pay for multiple students at one time, but will need all participant information during registration. There is an option to pay via check at the end of the registration process. Please make sure you note on the student and advisor registration forms if the name on the check is different than the participant and/or advisor. For questions about payment, please contact WCPA Treasurer, Sheila Keaton, at jensensa@gmail.com.

Students may submit a specific roommate request at the time of registration, and we will do our best to honor the request, though requests are not guaranteed. WCPA will make all arrangements for lodging, so students will not need to arrange for their accommodations. Please note that WCPA is covering the lodging and resort fee only. Students are responsible for providing the resort with a credit card upon check-in for any incidental charges or room damage.


Advisors accompanying students to Student Affairs 101 may register for $TBD. Lodging is not included.
