Please Note: You will be fully registered upon receipt of your $25 registration fee and tuition payment (if applicable). Submit your payments through this payment link or send check or money order to: Chicago Debate Commission, 200 S. Michigan Avenue Suite 1040, Chicago IL 60604.

For students who can only attend the first week of instruction, there will be a waitlist that will be kept until July. All two-week registered students will take priority until we reach our capacity and we highly recommend students attend all 10 days of instruction if they can. No students will be allowed to attend for just the second week of instruction – they would be too far behind to catch up.
