Registration for the MATHCOUNTS Competition Series is now closed.

Additional registrations may be approved on a case-by-case basis. Click here to submit a late registration request.

A student may register as a non-school competitor (NSC) only if their official school of record is not registering for the Competition Series and will not support student participation in the program through the school. Registration costs $80 per NSC plus an additional $15 late registration processing fee.

Who Can Be a Non-school Competitor (NSC)?

A student may compete as an NSC if:

  • Their official school of record is not registering for the 2022-2023 MATHCOUNTS Competition Series.
  • They are a student in grades 6-8.
  • There are no more than 12 NSCs registered from the school. If there are already 12 NSC registrations for your school, additional NSC registrations are not possible.

Note: Students attending home schools or virtual schools are not considered NCSs; home schools and virtual schools should register as schools in the online registration portal.

Before registering an NSC, please:

  • Confirm with school officials that your child's school will not be participating in the Competition Series. MATHCOUNTS may contact the school of a registered NSC to confirm eligibility. 
  • Review the Competition Rules & FAQ here to see complete NSC qualifications.

Registered NSC parents get instant access to online practice resources (including the 2022-23 School Handbook with step-by-step solutions and this year's School Competition), plus a mailed NSC Competition Kit with a hard copy of the handbook.
