Frequently Asked Questions


Do I need a UT EID to register?

No. The Mesoamerica Meetings are open to all scholars, students, and the interested public. The registration site was designed for access without a UT EID. If you register for the Full-time Student Price or the UT Austin Price for faculty, staff, and students with current UT EID, please have your Student or UT ID ready when you check in at registration. If you don't have your Student/UT ID you may be asked to pay the difference for the Regular Price.

How do I pay for the registration?

Please go to The Mesoamerica Meetings REGISTRATION link, click on the workshop and/or symposium, and proceed to checkout. The registration site was designed to accept major credit cards, so follow the instructions on the page. Once your workshop/conference payment has been processed, you will immediately receive an email confirmation receipt (please note that it will arrive from "The Sarah and Ernest Butler School of Music"). If you have not received an electronic receipt two weeks prior to the conference start day, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
