Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How much does Arcon cost to attend?
A: It depends on whether or not you pre-register or just show up at the con. Also, if you choose to buy a t-shirt or not affects your price. Current SUNY Oswego students recieve a $1 discount by showing their student ID card. This year’s prices are as follows:

Pre-reg – No t-shirt
Full Weekend: $13    Two Days: $10    One Day: $6

Pre-reg – With t-shirt
Full Weekend: $25    Two Days: $22    One Day: $18

At the door
Full Weekend: $15    Two Days: $12    One Day: $8

If you are a GM, your price will be lowered by one day’s entry per game you run. This will count up to twice. For example, if you register for the whole weekend with a t-shirt you would usually pay $25, but if you GM one game it will be $22 the price for two days.
