This page contains important information about PCOC registration. Please read through it all. Online registration forms are at the bottom.

If you have already registered but would like to add meals, the diagram book, and/or T-shirts to your existing registration, use the "Forgot Something" form.

Early Registration

Early registration is essential for our planning purposes. Our pricing schedule therefore encourages early sign-up. On-site registration will be available, though at additional cost.

If you plan to teach a class, we need you to register early so we can plan the class schedule. As in years past, classes are assigned based on your requests and your ticketing priority number; early registration also gets you a low (good!) priority number. See Taking Classes for deadlines and eligibility details.

Registration Categories

Most people come to PCOC to take classes all three days, of course! But you can come and take classes on just one or two days for a reduced fee, or just come as a guardian, aide, or companion of another folder. Please note: all minors must identify a guardian on their registration form.

Registration categories and prices are below. Meals, book, and T-shirt prices are detailed on the Prices page.

PCOC Value Package

The PCOC Value Package (PVP) is your best deal: attend all three days of classes, the Friday Reception, Saturday Banquet, and receive a diagram book (print or PDF) and T-shirt, all as part of your package. You can also order additional books and T-shirts as additional priced items on your registration form. The PCOC Value Package costs:

  • Prior to September 23, 1:00 pm EDT: $205 for members, $225 for non-members
  • September 23, 1:00 pm EDT and after: $246 for members, $270 for non-members

Day Passes

If you can only attend one or two days in person, you can register for Day Passes for one, two, or three days (though the PVP is your best options for three days). All meals, the diagram book, and/or T-shirts can also be ordered a la carte. Day Passes cost:

  • Prior to September 23, 1:00 pm EDT: $130 per day for everyone
  • September 23, 1:00 pm EDT and after: $156 per day for everyone


Non-folding guardians of under-age children may register as a guardian/aide without charge, as may non-folders who are accompanying a person with disabilities. Each person in need of a guardian or aide will receive one Guardian badge that can be used by multiple people, one at a time. This means that if, for example, Mother wants to come on Saturday and Father on Sunday, they can each use the same badge. At least one person must register as a Guardian. Please note that Guardians cannot join students in classrooms unless both are registered to attend classes. Meals, the diagram book, and T-shirts are available for purchase a la carte on your registration form.


If you are a companion of another attendee, you can attend PCOC for free. You'll be allowed to hang out in the main community room, but not accompany your person into classrooms. Meals, the diagram book, and T-shirts are available for purchase a la carte on your registration form.


If you are a non-folder who wishes to volunteer at the convention, and is willing to commit to two hours or more per day, please fill out the main registration form, ticking the attendance options box as staff. We will then contact you.
