» 2014-15 Updated Policies

Improvements from Last Season

More Efficient - less claim periods (only three vs. six last season); confirmation emails and ability to look up scanned times within online account.

Less Restrictions - missed games can only affect the ability to claim in the third and final claim period.

Addition of Ticket Returns - students will have the ability to return up to three (3) claimed games up to 24 hours before a game (reduces the complaint of not knowing far in advance one's schedule).

New for 2014-15

Attendance is tracked in the first two claim periods for all non-break games, a total of only nine (9) games: Wayne State, Hillsdale, Bucknell, Detroit, Syracuse, NJIT, EMU, Minnesota and Northwestern.
   » If a student claims and misses three (3) or more games within the first two claim periods, they are NOT eligible to claim tickets in the third claim period.

Students receive three (3) ticket returns on the season to account for last minute change of plans. Must be electronically returned a minimum of 24 hours prior to game. Failure to return a ticket on time and not attending counts as a missed game.

Break game attendance and third claiming period attendance will only be considered for postseason events when limited inventory is an issue (i.e, B1G Tourney, Final Four).

Attendance is tracked by show/no show and scan-in times (points are not used for men's basketball or ice hockey) and can be viewed online under Student Priority Points.

Students receive a confirmation email of their successful scan within 30 minutes upon entry. If this email is not received, it is the student's responsibility to check with a ticket taker before halftime to make sure their M-Card was scanned.

The "other" student offer will be reduced to one day only due to limited demand last year. These "other" students will be required to purchase their ticket at the State Street Ticket Office only on the specified day.

A Ticket Community has been developed via the Student Loyalty Mobile App "H.A.I.L." and includes an area for students to communicate tickets for sale and wanted for purchase.

Student-athletes have access to free tickets (upper level) this year and will have separate tickets allocated to them by game by a process overseen by Compliance.

Same as 2013-14

A full refund will be honored to season-ticket holders not interested in this process prior to the start of the season (however, no trial period and/or prorated refunds will be offered this year).

There are 3,000 seats allocated to students. There are currently 3,250 student season-ticket holders for this season.

Tickets are electronically placed on M-Cards.

Postseason opportunities will first go to those season-ticket holders with the best attendance (# of games attended) and on down the list.

Bleacher seats will be given out first-come first-served, followed by the seats in section 130, before moving into the upper level. Students who would like to sit together are encouraged to arrive at the same time since no seats will be reserved.
