Frequently Asked Questions

What is the schedule at SLU 101?

Click here for a tentative schedule!

What are the age requirements for SLU 101?

To participate as a single, a student must be at least 15 years old. To participate with a group, students should be at least 14 years old and going into 8th grade.

How are students roomed together at SLU 101?

As part of the registration process, both groups and singles must submit a rooming list no later than 45 days before the program.


Tuition rates are based on four people sharing a room. If you are unable to fill a room completely, you may request that SLU fill those empty spots with another student(s). If SLU is unable to fill the room, additional charges will apply (see empty fee price above). You may be billed for this after the final payment date, as necessary. Rollaway beds are not available.


SLU will automatically place you in a room with up to three other student attendees of the same gender based on the following guidelines:

  • Rooms may not be co-ed unless both attendees are members of the same family.
  • One individual student under 18 cannot be in a room by themselves.
  • SLU will not room an under-18 student with anyone over 18 if they are not from the same group.

If a parent is not attending the conference but would like to stay in the room with their student, you may pay the applicable empty spot fees to buy out the room. You may request this on the rooming list form after registering.

If I know other individuals who are attending and want to room with them, is that allowed?

If you know other individuals who are attending the same week as you, you may request to room together by filling out the rooming list and including each individual’s name. Each attendee must fill out a rooming list. You will receive the rooming list via email after registration.

Do I need to bring a Medical Release Form?

GROUPS: Group leaders must bring a medical release form for any minors attending without a parent/guardian and keep those forms with you at all times during the program. Medical release forms must empower your group leader (not SLU) to authorize medical treatment for the students you are bringing to the program.

SINGLES: Any student attending without a chaperone must complete the SLU Medical Release Form during the online registration process.

What do I do when I arrive at the hotel on Day 1 of SLU 101?

Registration is from 1:00PM-3:00PM on Day One. You will check in at the SLU table to pick up both your room keys and conference materials. You will need to have filled out the online Liability Form prior to your arrival on site. This document can be found here.

Please note that hotel rooms are not guaranteed to be available until 3:00PM.

What should I do about meals if I have dietary restrictions or food allergies?

If you have special dietary restrictions or food allergies, they should be submitted to SLU no later than 45 days before the program begins. If something comes up after registration, you can update your registration information up to 15 days before the program begins. Please be sure to offer specifics on what you cannot eat and what can be substituted. We will make every effort to accommodate, but there may be certain times when this is not possible. We recommend that you bring prepared foods or snacks with you that are compliant with your dietary needs.

What is the payment schedule and what payment options are available?

A $100 deposit is due at the time of registration, and the remaining balance is due 45 days before the program begins. Any registration not paid in full by this day will incur a $25 late fee. You have the following options for your registration payments:

Should I purchase travel protection for SLU 101?

We strongly recommend that you purchase travel protection as SLU prepays all hotels, meals, transportation, etc., 30 to 120 days before the conference. Therefore, we cannot pass a refund on to you other than as noted on the registration page. Click here for more information on travel protection. Travel protection must be purchased through the portal before the final payment deadline for the trip or before you make the final payment for the trip (whichever date comes first); you cannot add it after this date.
