STUDENT SEASON TICKET HOLDER TICKET OFFER: For a limited time, 2014 Michigan Football Student Season Ticket Holders will have the opportunity to purchase specially priced Michigan football tickets. All seven home games will be available for purchase; the Appalachian State game will be priced at $20 and the remaining six home games will be priced at $40. These tickets will be reserved seats in the student section at Michigan Stadium and validation fees will be waived.

Michigan Football Student Season Ticket Holders can purchase the specially priced tickets by logging into their student account.

After the deadline, the Michigan Athletic Ticket Office will be selling any of the remaining student tickets to any enrolled Michigan student.

2015 Graduate Offer: As a special offer to 2015 graduates, they will not only have the opportunity to receive five (5) additional Michigan Athletic priority points (a value of $500) by obtaining at least 18 attendance points (the equivalent of attending six (6) games or attending three (3) games early), but also have the opportunity to be part of the 2015 Michigan Football Season Ticket Interest List. [ More Information }

ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible to order and maintain a Michigan football season ticket, a student must intend to register for enough credit hours at the University of Michigan to become at least a half-time student and maintain such registration for the entire Fall 2014 term. A half-time student is an undergraduate student registered for at least 6 credit hours or a graduate student registered for at least 4 credit hours. Students taking courses for auditing purposes only (i.e. non-credit earning) are not eligible for student football season tickets.

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 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.

ORDERING: Current or previously enrolled students may order a football season ticket in the amount of $280 plus a $15 service charge (includes seven home games) beginning on Monday, March 17 at 8:30 a.m. You may also order the Official 2014 Season T-shirt for $15.

Student basketball and hockey tickets will also be available for purchase. Student basketball tickets are $200 and student hockey tickets are $150. New students (incoming freshmen, new graduate and transfer students) can order season tickets in June. New students will receive email communication from the Ticket Office on how to access their applications.

To order, login and follow the on-screen instructions. Our online order site is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for your convenience. Payment may be made by Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express. For an additional $15, you may also order the 12th annual Official Student Season T-shirt. This discounted price is available only when ordering your season football ticket. Shirts may be picked up at any M-Den store in late August.

DEADLINE: Tuesday, April 15, at 5 p.m.

2014 SEATING: For the 2014 season, all student football season ticket holders will have reserved seats. Reserved seat locations will be based on a combination of 2013 attendance and class level. The order of the seat allocation, starting with the rows closest to the field, is as follows:

  1. SuperFans - Returning students who attended at least five games and arrived at or prior to kickoff during the 2013 football season. This number is estimated close to 6,000 students. Returning seniors/grad school students among these 6,000 students will be seated in the lowest rows.
  2. Returning seniors/grad school students
  3. Returning juniors
  4. Returning sophomores
  5. Returning freshmen
  6. New incoming students (freshmen, transfers and graduate)
 

2015 SEATING: Starting with the 2015 season, all reserved seat locations will be decided by attendance points, not class level. Six (6) points/game are the most points that can be earned. Student football season ticket holders earn points by:

  • Arriving 30 or more minutes prior to kickoff -- 6 points
  • Attending the game -- 3 points
 

Students can earn up to 36 points for the 2014 season, which is the equivalent to arriving to 6 games at 30 or more minutes prior to kickoff. In the case of students being unable to attend a game to due extenuating circumstances (e.g. holiday, university student breaks, weather, etc.) we will not count their "worst" game in their overall attendance points. Thus, only 6 of the 7 games will be calculated for attendance. Points earned will be applied to the attendance record of the student season ticket holder whose ticket is scanned.

Students will be seated by highest point totals in the lowest rows (36 points) and proceed to the upper rows. Incoming freshmen/new students will have not yet earned points and will be seated in the upper rows, but can quickly earn great seats in the lower rows after one season.

Students will be seated randomly within their attendance point status (e.g. if 2,000 kids have 36 points, they will be randomly seated and/or by their group average).

Groups can be formed with a minimum of 2 students and a maximum of 100 students. These groups will be calculated by an average group attendance score. In the past, reserved seating was based on the lowest student in the group.

There will be no attendance point carry-over season to season, meaning all points totals will reset to zero at the beginning of each new season. The following season's location will be determined by these points.

There will be no class level based priority starting in 2015.

SEATING LOCATION: The student section will begin at the aisle break in section 25 and will extend through section 33, if needed.

DISABILITY: The Athletic Department encourages persons with disabilities to attend Michigan football 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.

MAILING: Football tickets will be mailed in August if you are enrolled for the Fall 2014 term. Be sure your application address is correct. If you are unsure of your summer address, choose the "will call" delivery option for your tickets to be held for pickup. Tickets will not be mailed to 48109 zip codes, unverified duplicate addresses, fraternity/sorority houses, or addresses outside of the US/Canada. These tickets will be held and must be picked up in person by the applicant (or the applicant's spouse) with a valid student ID. The post office has been instructed not to forward any tickets. Therefore, please update your address on mgoblue.com/tickets by signing in and updating your information under My Account by June 1, 2014. You may also fax or mail the change of address form to the Ticket Office by June 1, 2014. The Ticket Office cannot guarantee that tickets will be sent to addresses updated after June 1. If you do not receive your tickets by August 22, 2014, please call (866) 296-6849 to check on the status of your order. The Ticket Office is not responsible for tickets mailed from locations other than the Ticket Office.

STUDENT ID: Your student ID must be presented with your ticket to enter Michigan Stadium. No one shall use the ID of another student. If you do not have your Mcard upon arriving at Michigan Stadium, you will be required to validate your ticket in order to gain entry. No exceptions.

NON-STUDENT USE: A student ticket may be used by a non-student if it is validated. The price of a validation sticker varies by game, Appalachian State (FREE), Penn State ($40), and remaining 5 home games ($20). You can validate the ticket at the Michigan Athletics Ticket Office (1000 South State Street), the Michigan Union (530 South State Street), or Student Will Call (Michigan Stadium Gate 9).

AWAY GAMES: From Wednesday, April 16, 2014 until Friday, April 18, 2014, returning student season ticket holders may apply for away game tickets in person at the Athletic Ticket Office by presenting their student ID and payment. A $10 service charge will be added to each order. The Ticket Office will notify students if their order is confirmed.

GAME Price per ticket LIMIT
Notre Dame $110 1
Rutgers $80 1
Michigan State $80 1
Northwestern $70 1
Ohio State $150 1

If the number of applications received exceeds ticket availability, a lottery will be held with results available on June 4. Away game tickets must be picked up in person by the student applicant in the fall at the Ticket Office. Students not registered by September 1 will automatically be refunded for away game ticket orders. If you wish to sit with your friends at an away game, you must turn in your applications at the same time. You may complete applications for other students, but each student must pick up their own ticket with a valid student ID. Please note, away game ticket prices are set by the home teams.

IMPROPER USE OF TICKETS: Improper use of tickets may affect your student ticket ordering eligibility for future seasons.

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 football season 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 football tickets if it receives sufficient evidence that a football ticket assigned to you was sold or was offered for sale at greater than the face value of the ticket.

NSF (NON SUFFICIENT FUNDS) CHECKS: Returned checks will be assessed a $30.00 fee. If you do not honor your returned check promptly, your ticket order will be cancelled. 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 2013 term, you may receive a full refund (less the service charge) provided you send a written request and return the tickets to the Ticket Office prior to August 27, 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.
