2021 Registration Rates

Registration rates will be updated in November 2020.

Registration for the 2021 conference will open in December.


Registration fees will be refunded via the same method used for payment. 

It may take 10-14 business days to receive your refund. If you paid by check, it may take much longer given that many offices across many universities are temporarily shut down to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. 

If you cancelled your registration earlier and were charged the $25 cancellation fee, all cancellation fees will be refunded.  The $25 fee will be refunded via the same method used for payment.

If you have questions about your refund, please contact

Great Plains IDEA and Kansas State University are not responsible for other costs, charges, or expenses, including cancellation/change charges assessed by airlines or travel agencies.
