Where do I go to register online?

Registration online is now closed.  You will need to call in or register at the door.  There will be a late fee.  Thank you!


When should I register?

As soon as the registration form is put on the alumni website, you can go ahead and register.  Please also fill out the biographical form, too.  This will help us with updates in our data base and also be a source of info for your reunion group when you gather on Friday to fellowship with one another.

A registration form will be coming in the spring Mountain View alumni newsletter! Once we receive your registration (whether in paper form or the online version), your name will be placed on the "Guess Who's Coming" list!  Watch for your classmates' names and encourage one another to attend!

If you have any questions, call or email the Office of Alumni Affairs: 662.675.4771 x 119   or  alum@bmc.edu.


What does my reunion weekend registration pay for?
The registration fee helps defray the cost of providing any publications related to this event, as well as other expenditures incurred in coordinating this wonderful weekend.  The registration fee is assessed only once to alums and not their guests; this fee applies to all alums participating in the event, not just overnight campus guests.  Your registration fee is gesture of support in many ways.
If I miss preregistration, will I be charged a late fee?

Yes, there will be a $10 additional charge for those who do not register for Homecoming on the Hill by May 20th, 2016.  We will not be able to register anyone online, or over the phone, after this date.  If you miss the deadline, you will be required to register at the door, either on June 3rd or 4th, and be charged the late fee.

We are sorry for this inconvenience, but in order to appropriately and adequately plan for meals, lodging and other details, we have to have a cut-off time for registration.  Thank you for being prompt with your registration and your payment for meals and lodging!

Is any part of my registration, lodging or meals cost refundable?
Because of deadlines for food ordering and reserving rooms, we cannot refund after the pre-registration closes.   We will work with you in every way in case of an emergency.
