Frequently Asked Questions
Details about UCBMUN XXVIII vision and history can be found in the Overview page, and committee information can be found in the Committee Overview page. All details about Registration can be found on the Registration page or in the Registration Guide.
What is the registration process?
To begin the registration process please fill out our registration form! Once you have completed the initial registration form, we will send you a PayPal invoice and other information pertaining to conference such as committee preferences, hotel discounts, and flight codes.
Your registration will be finalized once payment is received—whether by invoice or by check. We will continually send out information leading up to conference. Please reach out to our Chief of Staff External at email@example.com for any questions or concerns.
When will we receive committee assignments?
We will finalize committee assignments sometime around January. Committee assignments will be made on a rolling basis once your school fills out the committee preference form and registration has been finalized (i.e. once payment has been received through PayPal or through the mail). Assignments will not be released until payment is finalized. For any extenuating circumstances or considerations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do I need to pay a delegation fee even if I’m coming alone from my school?
To make conference more accessible for smaller schools, delegations bringing just 1 or 2 delegates will have the delegation fee waived!
How can I get a tourist visa letter?
Once your registration is finalized (i.e. payment is received either through PayPal or mail), you may reach out to our Chief of Staff External at email@example.com or Secretary-General at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a visa letter by January 15th, and we will send you a tourist visa letter to help you acquire a tourist visa. Please reach out to our Chief of Staff External at email@example.com or Secretary-General at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions or concerns.
How do I send a check if my area doesn’t have PayPal?
If you’d prefer to send a check for the registration fee, please send it to:
ASUC/UC Berkeley Model United Nations c/o LEAD Center 432 Eshleman Hall Berkeley, CA 94720-4500
The instructions will also be specified in your PayPal invoice. Once your check is received, then we will finalize your registration.
What is considered a large vs. a small delegation?
Small delegations are considered twelve members and fewer, while large delegations are thirteen or more. Delegation awards will be decided according to the number of awards won by a delegation (50% weight) and the proportion of people within a delegation who win awards (50%).
