Multiple Student Presentations

SCCUR presentations at CSUSM allow no more than two presenters on each presentation (poster/oral), unless they are Arts performances. If there are two presenters, each presenter must forward their abstract acceptance separately to, as well as individually completing the requirements detailed on CSUF’s Student Research Resources page.

Students who miss the deadline or cut-off for free registration will receive an email from indicating that they must register and pay for registration on their own through the SCCUR 2019 website.
