ICPC NAC - NAPC FAQ's

What are the dates of the event?

Am I able to bring family/guests?

Due to space limitations, co-coaches, family, and other guests cannot be accommodated at the NAC. Please encourage your friends and family to follow the excitement on ICPC Live! A link will be provided at the ICPC NAC website.


What are UCF’s current mask/COVID-19 restrictions?

Many of UCF’s pandemic precautions, including regular updates to this website, ended with the Spring 2022 semester. While COVID-19 is still present, the combination of natural infection, vaccination and effective treatments have made the virus more manageable, similar to a cold or seasonal flu. We have learned so much about how to reduce the spread of virus and protect ourselves and those around us during the past two years. Good behaviors such as hand-washing, avoiding touching our faces and staying home if you are feeling ill are encouraged to protect against COVID-19 but also against common colds and seasonal flu. Thank you for all you continue to do to prioritize the health and safety of our community of Knights.


What can I expect from this event?

Lots of learning, competitive fun, and life-changing opportunities in meeting with other contestants, industry representatives, and government professionals!


I have special requests/need for lodging and food accommodations. Who can I reach out to?

Requests for special needs should be entered into the ICPC Registration system no later than May 8, 2024. Please email Jennifer.Sutton@ucf.edu with questions.
