Complete the registration and payment forms online!

Detailed confirmation materials will be emailed to you upon receipt of your registration and $30 registration fee. This fee will cover two meals for the student and one for the parents and siblings. We value your investment in visiting campus, so as a thank you for attending we will waive the online application fee ($50) for the registered student. Juniors will receive the fee waiver code in July of the following summer.

Full refunds are available until the registration deadline date listed above for each corresponding Connection date.

Travel Tips

If you are traveling by plane, we recommend either renting a car, taking an Uber or contacting a taxi company for transportation to and from the airport.

Because we can provide housing for one night only, please make arrangements if you need to arrive early or stay late. We're only able to accommodate high school juniors and seniors in the residence halls. Any other prospective students, parents and family members who plan to attend will need to stay at a nearby hotel.

Packing List

Students staying overnight in a residence hall will need a sleeping bag, pillow, towel, and toiletries. We suggest bringing several layers of comfortable clothing, walking shoes, and an umbrella. A few extra dollars to spend at Sam's Cafe or at the bookstore is always a great idea!

Parking Information

Parking will be available in the East Billy Graham Center parking lot. (PDF)
