Dioceses usually put together an overall NCYC registration package. Packages include not only the registration fee, but also overnight accommodations, travel to/from Indianapolis, ground transportation in Indianapolis, perhaps some meals, and often some kind of t-shirt/hoodie/hat/scarf/backpack that unifies and identifies the members of the delegation.

Completed Registration

"Completed Registration" is defined as:

  1. Participant information in the online system by 11:59 pm ET on September 30, 2017
  2. Financial Report/Invoice must be generated by online system by 11:59 pm ET on September 30, 2017
  3. Payment (with copy of Financial Report/Invoice) received by PIP no later than October 15, 2017. If payment is not received by the deadline, late fees will be applied.

Other Registration Related Fees

Out of Block:

A fee of $40 is added to any registration where the individual, group, or delegation is not staying in an NCYC block hotel.  The fee does NOT apply to those staying with family or in military accommodations. The fee may be waived on occasion at the discretion of NFCYM.

The out-of-block fee helps NFCYM recover lost commissions and rebates and protects against attrition fees. The commission on NCYC block rooms is 10% and is paid directly to the housing and registration company. The rebate on NCYC block rooms varies is used to help underwrite the license fee for the use of the convention center and stadium. Attrition fees are the amount charged by hotels when a contracting party fails to meet a minimum obligation for room use.


A fee of $20 is charged when the name of a new person is substituted for a registered participant. The fee is applied beginning 12:00 am ET on October 1, 2017, through onsite registration pick up. There is no change in registration rate in the case of a substitution regardless of when the substitution is made.


When a participant with a completed registration (usually after September 30) must cancel his attendance, and the spot cannot be filled by a substitution, NFCYM will refund the registration fee paid less $40.  Refund requests must be made in writing before November 1. Refunds will be processed in January 2018. Refund requests made after November 1 will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Refund requests should be sent via email to


The Catholic Youth Foundation USA provides registration scholarships to NCYC participant in need of assistance to attend.  If the application is funded, the Catholic Youth Foundation USA will underwrite up to 100% of the conference registration fee. CYFUSA expects that the individuals and local community will manage the remaining expenses. These parameters enable CYFUSA to support the greatest number of scholarship applications.
