Can my team attend a different regional championship than the one that is in my region?

Teams may apply to receive a waiver to attend a different regional championship than their own. Teams are not guaranteed a waiver to attend a different regional championship just by virtue of submitting the waiver request form. Possible acceptable circumstances under which a waiver will be granted include: assigned regional championship is much farther away than alternative regional championship, financially infeasible to attend assigned regional championship, or affiliated institution is holding a required activity during the regional championship (e.g. final exams). To apply to attend a different regional championship, please submit this form no later than one month before the date of your assigned regional championship.
