Q: Can alumni, post-undergraduate professional students, or graduate students participate in the Intercollegiate Eventing Program?
A: Since its inception, the focus of the Intercollegiate Eventing Program has been on undergraduate students. With that said, many schools offer graduate and professional students as well as alumni opportunities to be a part of the team. For this reason, organizers of Intercollegiate Challenges have typically opened them to all students, including graduate and professional students and alumni. Additionally, any student identified by their registered USEA Affiliate institution as currently enrolled will be eligible for the discounted membership rate. At the 2020 USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships, a separate Graduate division will be offered for graduates who wish to compete at the Championships.
Q: Why do I have to pay the full $85 before I can get the discounted rate?
A: This is a USEA policy. The full payment must be submitted at the time of registration. Once your team submits a team roster and your credentials have been verified a refund will be issued. If identification cannot be verified, no refund will be issued.
