Please complete the form below and submit payment by credit card to register.

Each attending representative from your university must register separately.
If bringing a guest, please register the guest separately using the Guest Registration Form ($100).

As stated in the COST bylaws, each member institution is required to send at least one representative to attend each COST annual meeting. It is understood that each member institution may still have its own policies surrounding the attendance of in-person meetings/ conferences. If you are unable to attend the 2022 meeting in person, we will have a virtual meeting option available through Zoom. While this is primarily being made available for our overseas COST Coordinators, we accept the fact that a few of our Stateside Coordinators may also need to attend in this way.

*Please note, the registration fee ($250) is the same, whether you plan to attend in person or virtually.
