The MOACAC STEAM Tour, open to all college counselors in the US and abroad, showcases Missouri’s colleges and universities, specifically focusing on their offerings within Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math.  This year’s tour includes the following schools:

Registration Cost: $450

Costs Included: Single room accommodations, transportation from hotel and back to all participating colleges and universities, bus transportation between each college visit, and event meals.

Costs NOT Included: (paid by the participant): All meals outside planned events, round-trip airfare to KC and from STL to your home airport, transportation to and from the airport, and any hotel upgrades.

To maintain the quality of the tour, for both counselors and host institutions, we are limiting the capacity to 30 counselors.  Attendees are expected to take part in all planned activities through the end of the tour.

Counselors who choose to attend the tour will agree to arrive in Kansas City on Sunday, July 16, stay in the arranged hotel through the end of the tour and depart no earlier than the morning of Friday, July 21.  Prior to the tour, participating counselors will be required to provide a copy of their confirmed flight itinerary to Heather Brock, STEAM Tour Chair.

Cancellation Policy:
 
MOACAC will refund the STEAM Bus Tour registration fee minus a $50 processing fee when written notice is given 30 or more calendar days before the event start date. No refunds will be given after 30 or fewer calendar days to the event start date. If we do not reach minimum capacity, we reserve the right to cancel the tour and will refund tour registration fees. If we do have to cancel, we will refund your registration fee but we are not responsible for reimbursing travel costs.
