We're excited to have you register for VAMUN 38 this year! We strive to make registration as easy and convenient as possible. Registering for VAMUN XXXVIII takes only four steps:

Step One: Fill out the Registration Form, found here.

Step Two: Submit your school registration fee

Your registration will NOT be complete without submitting the $70.00 school registration fee. The $70.00 school registration fee is NOT refundable. We highly recommend that the check be sent before August 1st, 2018, to guarantee a position within VAMUN XXXVIII. The school registration fee must be paid through a check payable to the International Relations Organization at the following address:


c/o International Relations Organization

Post Office Box 400435

Newcomb Hall Station

Charlottesville, VA 22904-4435

Step Three: We will email you with instructions on Individual Delegate Registration.

On July 1stand every day after, the delegate fee is $65.00 per delegate, which you can pay by check made payable to International Relations Organization and sent to the address above. If you plan to do an electronic bank transfer, please contact the Under-Secretary-General for Delegations, Andrew Farnsworth, at delegations@vamun.org, no later than November 7th. If you plan to pay via Venmo, please do so to the Venmo account, @IROatUVA. Please feel free to contact Andrew with any questions or concerns.

The Delegate fee is refundable up until the date of October 1st, 2018. Upon that day, and any day after, any fees for delegates that have been dropped must be paid in full.

Once we receive the $70.00 Delegation Registration payment, the Under-Secretary-General of Delegations, Andrew Farnsworth, will send updates, committee preference forms, committee assignments, and preparatory emails leading up to VAMUN XXXVIII.

Step Four: Complete the final registration at the Newcomb Office on Friday, November 17th.

The location for the registration office will be emailed to all sponsors prior to the start of the conference and updated in the conference schedule.

We must have payment from your school in order to allow participation in VAMUN. This is resolved through two steps:

  1. The $70.00 Delegation Registration fee must be paid by check to the address listed above in Step 2. We highly recommend this check be paid as soon as you register, in order to guarantee participation in VAMUN XXXVIII.

  2. The $60.00 or $65.00 Individual Delegate fees must be paid in full. In order to get the Early Registration $5.00 discount, the $70.00 registration payment AND the $60.00 per delegate payments must be received before or on the date of July 1st. We recommend sending a check 10 business days before July 1st, or if you pay by electronic bank transfer or Venmo, submitting payment 5 business days before July 1st. After that date, Individual Delegate fees are $65.00 per delegate.. If you submit payment by electronic bank transfer or Venmo, it must be submitted by November 7th. If you pay via check, the check should be received by November 7th, so please mail the check in advance accordingly.

Payment is required for participation in VAMUN XXXVIII. We will not allow participation in VAMUN without payment before the conference. This entails admittance into committee rooms, delegate and sponsor materials, and other delegate and sponsor amenities.
