USENIX Conference Fees for Students

Technical Sessions

USENIX offers deeply discounted technical session fees for full-time students. Any full-time student may register at the reduced rate independently of applying for a conference grant. Please check each conference fee structure to determine the costs for students; see the calendar of upcoming conferences.

To receive discounted student conference registration rates, your student status must be validated prior to registering for a conference. Please sign in to your account or register for a free USENIX account to upload documentation and apply for student validation. After your student status has been validated, you will automatically receive the discounted student registration rate when you register for a conference, as applicable. Discounts, validations, and student rates are not transferable. Start the validation process now.


For conferences that include a training program, a limited number of tutorial seats are reserved for full-time students at a deeply discounted rate. The Conference Department must receive your full payment within 14 days from the date you make your registration, or your registration will be canceled. This special fee is nontransferable.
