Payment Instructions

After registering your team with iGEM on the team registration page at iGEM 2016 Registration, you must complete the iGEM 2016 Payment Form. Teams can check their payment status through RegOnline. RegOnline is not linked to the iGEM records, and the registration fee status on team profile pages is manually updated. It may take a few days for payment to be reflected on a team's profile page.

Keep in mind that you can, and will need to, pay your team registration fee before your team application has been accepted. Paying the team registration fee is part of the registration process and your team will not be accepted until the fee has been paid.
