Fees, Deadlines & Application Information

General Registration Policies

Applications are recorded on a first-come, first-served basis as determined by the timestamp of your online registration. Decisions will be released by April 21st, 2017. Registering early will aid your application but does not guarantee admission. We will maintain a waitlist as in prior years if any additional spots open up.

Schools with 2500 students or fewer are limited to 25 delegates at BUSUN. Schools with more than 2500 students are limited to 35 delegates.

Conference Fees and Payment

Fees are split up into two portions: a school fee, paid once, a delegate fee paid for each delegate registered, and a chaperone fee paid for each chaperone in excess of the ratio of one chaperone for every ten delegates.

The school fee must be postmarked by the indicated deadlines in order for your registration to be complete. Schools that do not pay the school fee by the Regular Payment deadline may forfeit their space at BUSUN. Schools on the waitlist are not required to pay the school fee until they are offered a spot at the conference.

Schools placed on the waitlist prior to August 1 will be permitted to pay at the early payment rates.

Fee Early Payment Regular Payment
School Fee $55 $65
Delegate Fee (paid per delegate) $60 $70
Chaperone Fee (paid per extra chaperone) $10 $10

Finally, shuttle fees (information regarding shuttles here), are $18 per delegate or chaperone, and are subject to our refund policies, as specified below.

Waitlist Policy

All schools accepted to BUSUN XXI are required to confirm their attendance by May 19th, 2017. After this date, we will begin to offer spots to schools on our waitlist. When deciding the order of those offered spots from the waitlist, we will consider timeliness of application, quality of application, past participation, and geographic location if applicable.


School fees must be paid by September 18, 2017. However, the rate (early or regular) at which you will be charged will depend upon the postmarked date of your school fee when it is sent. The early fee rate will be applied if the postmarked date is before July 21, 2017.

The final deadline for all fees including delegate, chaperone, and shuttle fees is October 1, 2017.

Payment will only be accepted in the form cash and checks. We cannot process credit cards. Please make all checks out to Brown University Model UN. Payments may be mailed to us at:
