Payment Options


We accept payment online, by telephone, and by mail, through the following methods:
  • Check or money order (Make payable to “C.S. Lewis Foundation” and include a note designating the check as payment for Oxbridge 2020.) To do so, register online and choose “check” as your payment option. Send the payment to our mailing address at C.S. Lewis Foundation, P.O. Box 8008, Redlands, CA 92375. We do not receive mail at our physical address in Redlands. Please note that paying by check helps save us a significant amount that is lost to credit card fees – we are a nonprofit organization that relies on individual donors for support and every little bit saved from credit card fees helps in our mission! 🙂
  • Credit Card – We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. Credit cards are charged through PayPal as the processing company, but do not require a PayPal account or sign up.
  • PayPal – You may use a PayPal account to pay through our online registration system.


Discounted Rates

* Note: group discounts cannot be combined with other discounts. To receive discount, group must register together using the bundle discount on our 2020 Summer Conference online registration page or call us to arrange registration & payment. Registrants can only receive one discount. Discounts listed above may not be combined. For example, a person can only receive the Super Early Discount or the Student Discount, but not both. Super Early and Early Bird Discounts require payment in full during the discount time period. If you register during the period, but don’t make payment until after the discount expires, you will not receive the discount. When registering, you may choose whichever option is applicable and serves you best. Scholarships and discounts: If you are awarded a tuition or work study scholarship, you will not also receive a discount. You’ll need to register for the full registration rate (not early bird nor super early bird) and choose check in the mail as your payment option. We’ll then award your scholarship, log it in the registration system, and have you make payment on the remaining amount separately at a future date.


The Registration fee of $395 is non-refundable. Due to contractual agreements with our venues, all payments for Admission (Program Fee) are fully refundable up to April 10, 2020, 50% refundable from April 11, 2020 to June 15, 2020; and nonrefundable after June 15, 2020. St. Catherine’s College has its individual refund policy. See its website when you register for information.

Exchange Rate

As all C.S. Lewis Foundation costs for the event are ultimately due and payable in British pounds sterling to vendors in the U.K., the cost in U.S. currency may be subject to increase due to potential fluctuations in currency exchange rates. Should the cost of the pound rise above $1.70 by July 3, 2020, a pro-rata currency exchange surcharge may be applied.

Travel Insurance

It is strongly advised that C.S. Lewis Summer Institute participants purchase travel insurance to protect themselves from unforeseen events that may impact their travel plans.

Photography/Filming/Information use

Lewis Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
