Online Payments and Refunds

What forms of payment are accepted ONLINE?

MSPA ONLINE accepts only VISA, Mastercard, and PayPal.  All ONLINE transactions are processed via PayPal. 

This charge will appear on your credit card statement as payment to PAYPAL *MARYLANDSCH.

Upon completing your ONLINE transaction, two receipts (one from MSPA and one from Paypal) will be emailed to you.

Refunds are permitted for some transactions. Please check the event webpage or the event brochure for details.

I am a member, but when I try to register for an event ONLINE, I get a message indicating that I need to establish membership.

Some events or event levels are for members only.  a)  Verify that the email address you are using for registration is the same one associated with your membership account.  b)  Attempt to register again.  The smallest error in typing your email address could result in a rejection.  c) Verify that your membership status is up-to-date.  MSPA may send some emails to both current and former members.

I am unable to complete my registration due to an unpaid invoice.   Invoices are created each time a registration process is initiated.  Some people abort the transaction prior to the final step, but after an invoice has been created.  Effective 05/06/13,  all incomplete transactions will be voided.  Unpaid invoices will be deleted.  If you find that you have an unpaid invoice, please email

I would like to register for an event ONLINE and pay by mail.  MSPA no longer supports this option for Event registration.  If you wish to register online, you must submit your payment at the time of registration.  If you would like to pay via USPS, please download the brochure and follow the instructions.
