2014-15 U-M Student Men's Basketball Ticket Policies

The 2014-15 season will be the second year of the claiming system (see last season's results). There are a total of 3,250 student season-ticket holders this season, down from a final number of 3,600 last season. Similar to last season, there are 3,000 seats available for all non-break games.

Improvements Include

• Fewer claim periods -- three (3) compared to six (6) last season
• Missed claimed game penalties will only affect the ability to claim in the 3rd and final claim period (vs. penalties in each claim period last season)
• Students will have the ability to return up to three (3) claimed games; must be done up to 24 hours before a game to account for last-minute plans (not available last season)
• Electronic tracking of scanned tickets for confirmation of attendance (not available last season)
• Additional seats added for spring break game vs. Rutgers (based on demand from last season)

Student Basketball Ticket

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.

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.

NON-STUDENT USE: 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. Please visit our Basketball MCard Policy page to find out more about the electronic ticket transfer process. The deadline to transfer your ticket is three (3) hours prior to the game.

H.A.I.L: Learn about our student loyalty program where you can get rewarded for attending Athletic events, including men's basketball. New this year, check out the "Ticket Community" on H.A.I.L, where users can list their interest in buying and selling men's basketball tickets. [ 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 2014 term, you may receive a full refund (less the service charge) provided you send a written request to the Athletic Ticket Office at mtickets@umich.edu prior to Oct. 24, 2014. 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.
