The registration fee is $100, payable by check, money order, or purchase order, to Texas State University. Please send it to TJCTC at 1701 Directors Blvd. Suite 530, Austin, TX 78744.

In order to keep our seminars at capacity and give everyone enough time to request funds, we are requesting the registration fee one month prior to the event start date. Once you are registered for an event, an invoice with due dates will be available for you to download and print within your TJCTC profile.

You are on your own for all your travel expenses and if you opt for a single room, you will need to pay one half of the room rate per night. TJCTC will provide a catered breakfast and lunch on the meeting date.

Cancellations must be done through your TJCTC profile and received two weeks prior to the event start date in order to receive a full refund. If you must cancel your registration within two weeks to the event, email your cancellation to our Registrar, Laura Villarreal, at lv13@txstate.edu.
