As announced in the fall with Central Student Government, the athletic department will have a needs based ticketing model for students. The athletic department has worked with the Office of Financial Aid to provide a more inclusive option for students with needs. The process for reduced pricing was communicated to eligible returning students by the Office of Financial Aid on Monday, Feb. 23, and the difference will be refunded to new incoming students in September once financial aid award packages are finalized.
DEADLINE: Friday, March 27, at 5 p.m.
ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible to order and maintain a Michigan basketball ticket, you must intend to register for classes for the entire Fall 2015 term and Winter 2016 term.
BASKETBALL CLAIM PROCESS: Students who have purchased a student basketball ticket for $200 will electronically claim the specific games they wish to attend during various claim periods. These dates will be communicated in the fall. Tickets that are not claimed by student ticket holders are then offered to student non-ticket holders and the general public to ensure a full and loud Crisler Center. See the Student Men's Basketball Season-Ticket Holder Seating Plan for information and frequently asked questions.
2015 SEATING: Students who have claimed the game will enter Crisler Center at the Maize Rage student entrance to receive their seat voucher. Student tickets are distributed in this order: student bleachers, section 130, upper level student sections. Students wishing to sit together must enter the Maize Rage entrance together.
PROOF OF ELIGIBILITY: The Ticket Office will check your registration status with the Registrar's Office. If you are not properly registered prior to the beginning of the basketball season, your season ticket will be held until you provide us with proof of such registration. If you are not properly registered after the season begins, the Ticket Office will deactivate the bar code on your season tickets for the remaining games and no refund will be issued.
TICKET TRANSFER: You can transfer your claimed ticket to a non-student for FREE and as long as they attend the game with your ticket -- you will receive attendance credit. A student ticket may be used by a non-student and does not need to be validated. However, the non-student MUST enter through the Maize Rage entrance. The deadline to transfer your ticket is three (3) hours prior to the game. Post-game priority points will not be granted in the event a transfer is done incorrectly. Please note that if the student using your ticket does not scan in at the game, you do not receive priority points for that game.
ORDER HISTORY: You can view your order history by visiting mgoblue.com/tickets (My Account). Sign in with your 8 digit student ID number and password.
DISABILITY: The Athletic Department encourages persons with disabilities to attend Michigan basketball games. If you need to purchase a wheelchair accessible season ticket or have questions about the physical access provided, please call the Ticket Office at (866) 296-6849 (MTIX) prior to ordering tickets or attending a game.
DELIVERY: Basketball season tickets will be loaded to your MCard student ID which will be scanned for entry to Crisler Center.
STUDENT ID: Your student ID must be presented to enter Crisler Center. No one shall use the ID of another student.
H.A.I.L: Learn about our student loyalty program where you can get rewarded for attending Athletic events, including Men's Basketball. Check out the "Ticket Community" on H.A.I.L, where users can post unused tickets, search for tickets by event, and chat about making transfers all from their H.A.I.L. app. [ MGoBlue.com/Hail ]
SCALPING: Scalping (selling a ticket above face value) violates University policy and Michigan law. Attempting to sell or solicit the sale of a ticket (even at face value) on campus without a permit also violates University policy. Therefore, a violation of these University policies or this Michigan law may result in your ineligibility to purchase tickets in the future even if criminal charges are not filed against you. The Athletic Department reserves the right to declare you ineligible to order tickets if it receives sufficient evidence that a ticket assigned to you was sold or was offered for sale at greater than the face value of the ticket.
NSF CHECKS: Returned checks will be assessed a $30 fee. If you do not honor your returned check promptly, your ticket order will be canceled. You will be responsible for the $30 fee before you may purchase tickets to any Michigan sporting event.
REFUNDS: If you apply for a season ticket and later decide not to enroll for the Fall 2015 term, you may receive a full refund (less the service charge) provided you send a written request to the Athletic Ticket Office at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to Oct. 24, 2015. No phone requests will be accepted. Additionally, there will be no refunds for students whose season tickets have been voided because the student is not properly registered.
MISCELLANEOUS: Only tickets purchased directly from the Ticket Office are guaranteed to be valid. Individuals admitted with invalid tickets will be ejected. Everyone must have a ticket regardless of age. The Ticket Office assumes no responsibility for lost, stolen or destroyed tickets, or tickets mailed from locations other than the Ticket Office.
