Registration FAQs

Is financial aid or a reduced rate available?
In addition to discounted student and academic rates, SciPy offers financial scholarships to a select number of attendees, with selection based on both merit and need. We are very grateful to our sponsors for helping to provide this financial aid. The deadline for the financial aid application is March 19, 2018. The application may be found here.

What is the refund policy?
100% refund (less a $20 processing fee) through Friday, June 29th. You must contact to complete the refund transaction. Effective Saturday, June 30th, there are no refunds. However, you may transfer your registration to another individual by notifying

I am an international attendee. What if I have trouble obtaining a visa or if I am denied entry into the US?
SciPy will provide a 100% refund to attendees who have registered, but could not obtain a visa or were denied entry into the US.  We do require written documentation that your visa was rejected or that you arrived in the US but were denied entry.
When will I select which tutorial I want to attend?
Individual tutorial sessions will be announced in late March. At that time, you will receive an email to log into your registration and make your selections. Our most popular tutorials do sell out and you will need to register in advance for your individual sessions. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Jill Cowan at
