COUNTRY ASSIGNMENT POLICY

For delegations that have completed registration, paid the deposit and are accepted to the conference by October 9, 2016, country assignments will be determined in mid to late October. Country assignments will be released to delegations once the full payment has been made and the delegation has no outstanding balance. Due to limited availability and a large number of participants, country preferences cannot always be met. Space is also limited in Specialized Committees, and while we will do our best to accommodate your delegation’s preferences, we do not guarantee that all preferences will be met.

Country assignments are determined by a variety of factors, including Model United Nations experience, prior delegation conduct at Yale Model United Nations conferences, number of delegates requested, and country preferences.  If you are not assigned one of the countries you requested, it may be to ensure that you receive the number of spots requested. 


Policy For Schools and Delegations From China

YMUN is pleased to announce our collaboration with Sunrise International Education, the official partner of our sister conference, Yale Model United Nations China. In addition to serving as the local partner of YMUN China, Sunrise is also responsible for managing YMUN XLIII delegations composed of students that attend certain designated schools in  Mainland China. Please note, there are some Mainland Chinese secondary schools that may only attend as part of the Sunrise delegation, and delegates from these schools will not be permitted to attend with other delegations. We urge you to keep this in mind as you register for YMUN XLIII, and thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Official correspondence on the updated registration policy is available for both member schools (click here) and delegations (click here).
