Payment Process

After completing the initial registration process, schools will be sent an invoice and asked to complete their payment by credit card or wire transfer.

To process payments, a school should collect all fees from delegates and pay once. Once payment has been received, the designated school advisor will receive a final notice of registration confirmation.

Payment must be received upon specified conference deadlines to secure your delegation's spots in MITMUNC. Failure to complete this process will result in a delegation's spots being released to waitlist due to high demand.

Refunds cannot be processed after payment unless conference is cancelled.

MITMUNC is committed to making the conference accessible to everyone, regardless of financial circumstances. If payment of conference fees is a barrier to participation to MITMUNC, you may apply for financial aid to assist in reduction of conference fees by filling in the financial aid section of the registration form.

Frequently Asked Questions


The MIT Model United Nations Conference is the premier international Model UN conference for high school students with a special focus on small committee sizes.


Unlike other conferences, in which many students encounter little to no leeway for participation inside massive general sessions, MITMUNC leverages committee sizes in such a way that gives students the most opportunity for personal contribution and distinction.


In order to ensure participation in MITMUNC, faculty advisors and delegates must pay special attention to our conference deadlines as well as apply early and properly. Please visit the Registration page to register.


MITMUNC is only open to high school students in all nations across the world and not to those currently enrolled in a full-time college or university. Please note that each school may register a maximum of 40 delegates.


An advisor is not needed for the virtual conference. However, we recommend students contact their school's Model United Nations club to foster interest in attending MITMUNC as the school's delegation rather as an individual delegate.


MITMUNC is committed to making the conference accessible to people of all backgrounds and circumstances. A significant portion of our delegates receive aid every year in the form of registration discounts. If payment of conference fees is a barrier to participation to MITMUNC, you may apply for financial aid to assist in reduction of conference fees by filling in the financial aid section of the registration form.


MITMUNC China is closely co-organized with ASDAN China. ASDAN is an educational non-profit based in the United Kingdom and offers international educational programs in China, Europe, North America. MITMUNC China is a three-day conference that follows a similar schedule to our flagship conference, with the same rules and procedures, and it offers hundreds of Chinese high school students across the Asian nation the opportunity to debate upon important international issues posing veritable challenges to the world today, such as the reality of climate change, cybersecurity, and refugee assistance in conflict zones.
