You must complete the online registration form located inside of your acceptance email. You must fill in all of the required fields and pay the appropriate registration fee. Once you pay the fee you will be directed to fill out a flight form. Within 72 hours, a Frosch Travel agent will contact you with a confirmed flight. If you are under the age of 18, you must have a parent or legal guardian sign a release form for you to attend the CUFI Summit. Refer to your acceptance email to find the link.


Once your flight is booked, you will have 24 hours to make changes to your itinerary. If you have to cancel after CUFI books your flight, you will be responsible for the full cost of the ticket. 

If you are traveling with a group, we will hold your flight form until we have all of the forms from each individual in your group. 

What is the dress code?

Business/Business casual attire is the dress code for the entirety of the CUFI Summit. We give students a general guideline to dress as if they were going for a job interview. You can see a suggested packing list below to help guide you. As the CUFI Summit is a professional conference, if you attend in casual or travel attire, we will request that you change. 

Are there chaperones?

Yes, approved chaperones who have gone through a background check will chaperone the CUFI High School students at the Summit. There will be both male and female chaperones present to ensure that both male and female students have appropriate supervision.


Packing Suggestions

When it comes to packing keep in mind the airline you are traveling on. Checked luggage may be free on some airlines or could have a fee on others. The dress code for the Summit is business attire. See the list below for a suggested packing list. 

  • Government-issued ID (driver’s license, driver’s permit, passport, etc.): for use in the airport and to check in for the conference

  • Reusable water bottle to refill with water throughout the conference

  • Bible

  • Business attire for all Summit sessions (enough for 5 days; no jeans should be worn during Summit programming; you should plan to not need to wash laundry). A good guideline for this is to dress as if you are going to a job interview:

    • Examples of ladies’ business attire for this event: nice blouses, slacks, skirts, blazers, nice cardigan sweaters, dresses (dresses and skirts should be at the knee)

    • Examples of guys’ business casual attire for this event: button-down shirts, slacks, suit jackets, nice shoes (There should not be t-shirts)

  • Comfortable dress shoes. There is a lot of walking entailed during Summit. We have long days and want you to be as comfortable as possible. Ladies, if you choose to wear heels, we recommend you bring flats in your bag to change into for walking.

  • Light jacket or sweater because it can get cold in an air-conditioned building

  • Pajamas and undergarments

  • At least two outfits of casual clothing for after-programming hang-out time.

  • Toiletry items (toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, soap, face wash, hygiene products, etc.)

  • Prescription medications, including an epi-pen for allergies, if you have one

  • A few snack food items, such as granola bars or protein bars (highly suggested)

  • Spending money for souvenirs or additional expenses, such as meals during traveling
