How much does it cost to attend ILC?

  • Hotel costs are approximately $200-250/night for a double bed room.
  • Students should plan on about $15-20/breakfast and lunch and about $30 per dinner.
  • Other expense: transportation from the airport to the hotel via rideshare or taxi (occasionally hotels have shuttle service).

Do I have to stay in a conference hotel?

  • Yes, for liability reasons, all members/guests/advisors registered for ILC MUST stay in an approved conference hotel. Those who do NOT stay in an approved hotel will be disqualified from all HOSA activities and events. Hotels do fill up fast, and HOSA will continue to add hotels (to a certain point), but it’s important to reserve rooms as soon as possible!

Is the registration fee refundable?

  • Once ILC official registration closes, no refunds will be paid.
