Conference allocations and division between teams and individuals are posted to the ECCC website and mailing list at the start of each season. Lists of qualifying riders are similarly posted immediately after the conference season championship (Easterns). To participate at nationals, riders must have their school registrar complete a form verifying their full-time status, and should budget some time to have this done.

Teams and riders interested in participating at nationals are strongly encouraged to join the conference mailing list. This is the best place to get timely updates and clarifications.

More general information and pointers to schedules, venues, and registration are available on the USAC Collegiate website.
