How to Register



Step One: Navigate to the website of the conference of your choice and select the 'Registration' tab from the menu bar.


Step Two: The 'Registration' tab will have an overview of all available conference with a breakdown of prices corresponding with registration deadlines. Please note that deadlines update automatically and the system will display the price of the current registration deadline. To register, select the blue REGISTER button at the bottom of the table of the registration option of your choice.


Step Three: You will be taken to the following screen. If you already have a CGScholar account, please log in at this time using the prompt box under Registration Options and Extras. If you do not have a CGScholar account, select the radio button next to 'I need a Scholar Account' and proceed*.


Step Four: After you have logged into your CGScholar account or created a CGScholar account as a first-time user, scroll down on the same page. You will see a list of registration options with descriptions, quantity, price, and total sum columns.


For regular full conference, one-day, and virtual registration types, users can select the number of each registration that they would like in the quantity column. If you encounter the 'Request' button in the Quantity column, please refer to the hyperlinked registration guides in Step Two.

Step Five: After selecting the registration type of your choice, you can proceed to checkout (NOTE: Only users who are logged into their CGScholar account can proceed with registration. New users should create their CGScholar account and then complete the registration process).

On the checkout page, you will see an overview of your registration, as well as a second box with payment methods.

1. Payment via Credit Card: If you are paying by credit card, you will see the screen below.

2. Payment by Check

3. Payment by Bank Transfer

4. Register and Pay Later: Common Ground also has an option to 'Register and Pay Later' under the primary payment options. This is ideal if you are creating your registration but cannot pay at time of registration and/or if you are having a sponsor, such as your institution, pay for your registration. If you are paying for your registration, select the 'Self (I will pay)' radio button and click 'Register' to create your registration.

5. If you are having a sponsor pay, select the 'Sponsor' radio button and complete the requested details (visible below).
