Registration Payment Policy
Payment for registration fees must be initiated within 48 hours of registration (Rule 1.12.1). When registering online teams will be faced with a ‘Pay Now’ or ‘Pay Later’ choice. Please note that once either 'Pay Now' or 'Pay Later' is clicked, your registration spot will be secured. Rest assured that choosing the 'Pay Now' will not slow down the registration process.
PAY NOW: If a team chooses ‘pay now’ they must immediately complete payment for the event online with a credit card. Teams may use multiple credit cards if they wish.
PAY LATER: When choosing ‘Pay Later’ the team's invoice will generate later. Invoices take 24 hours to generate. From the time of invoice generation, a team has 48 hours to complete payment OR to provide proof of payment initiation. Essentially, teams have 72 hours to complete payment if this option is chosen. Teams will be able to pay with a credit card on their team profile page at www.sae.org or over the phone with our Customer Service Department once their invoice has generated.

Definition of ‘Proof of Payment Initiation’: This option is for when teams pay through their university with a check/PO process. Teams that choose this option MUST provide us with a copy of their communication with their school's financial department showing that the funds have been requested. It is also acceptable to have their financial department email us directly. All ‘Proof of Payment Initiations’ must to emailed to [email protected]. 'Proof of Payment Initaition' must be submitted to us prior to the 48 hour payment deadline.
