Please make all checks payable to the William and Mary International Relations Club. Do not make checks payable to WMHSMUN, William & Mary, or W&M MUN. The school fee and half of the Delegate Fees are due by the time registration is scheduled to close on October 3rd, 2014. Should registration close early due to capacity, the fee deadline does not change. All payments must be made in full by the conference weekend during Check-In.

Late Fees

Late fees apply to all schools that have filled out the online registration form at the close of registration on October 3rd, 2014, but have not submitted the initial payment installment - half of the delegate fees as well as the $50 conference fee. A $5 late fee will be imposed for each unpaid delegate in addition to the original $60 per delegate. To avoid late fees, be sure that the initial payment is received or postmarked by October 3rd, 2014.

Late Drops

If an entire delegation drops before October 24th, they will be refunded only half of the already paid delegate fees. If the delegation drops after October 24th, no refund will be given. If a school has not paid any fees and has dropped after October 24th, they are expected to pay the Installment Payment. Additionally, the $50 school fee is non-refundable. This policy exists to cover the significant costs incurred prior to the conference weekend.


Please contact Melanie Gilbert, Registration Director <>, if you have any questions regarding your payment installments.

Fine Print

The entire school fee and one half of the delegate fee are due by registration close on October 3rd, 2014 ("Installment Payment"). The remainder of fees, outlined herein, must be paid in full at Check-In on the first day of the conference, November 14th, 2014. The WMHSMUN Secretariat must be notified by October 24th, 2014 of any dropped delegates in order to receive any refund of delegate fees for dropped delegates. No fees will be refunded for dropped delegates after the October 24th, 2014 deadline. If schools drop delegates after this deadline and have not paid any delegate fees so far, the half that was due prior to October 3rd must still be paid with late fees. For avoidance of doubt, under no circumstance will school fees be refunded once paid.
