Health & Safety

The American Association of Colleges and Universities is committed to protecting the health and safety of all participants at its 2023 annual meeting “Reclaiming Liberal Education” in San Francisco.

As ongoing health emergencies and the spread of communicable diseases, including but not limited to COVID-19, permeate our lives, AAC&U continues to align itself with the requirements set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); national, state, and local public health agencies; and the venues hosting AAC&U events.

AAC&U cannot guarantee that attendees will not be exposed to or contract a communicable disease at in-person events. However, AAC&U is working to sustain the health and safety of event attendees, staff, presenters, speakers, sponsors, and volunteers. We will maintain preventative measures to reduce the spread of communicable diseases while onsite. AAC&U retains its right to modify policies and procedures at any time.


Pay Later Policy

AAC&U offers a "Pay Later" payment option that allows registrants to defer payment.
  • This option secures a registration slot, but it is not guaranteed until payment is received in full.
  • The early-bird registration rate will be honored if we receive full payment by the early-bird cutoff date. If full payment is not received by this date, the registrant will be re-invoiced at the current applicable rate and a new invoice will be emailed.
  • If payment is not received 15 business days (January 3, 2022) before the first day of the meeting, the registration will be cancelled.
  • Payment can be made via credit card, check, or ACH (electronic payment).

The Pay Later Option is NOT available after December 21, 2022. Any registrations submitted with this option after that date will NOT be processed.

Cancellations must be requested 15 business days prior to the meeting start date by submitting a written request via email to registration@aacu.org. A $125 cancellation fee will be charged.
