2014 U-M New Student Football Ticket Information
ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible to order and maintain a Michigan football season ticket, a student must intend to register for enough credit hours 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.
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: Incoming freshman, new graduate and transfer students (those who have not previously attended class on any U-M campus) may order a football season ticket in the amount of $280 plus a $15 service charge (includes seven home games) beginning on Monday, June 2, at 8:30 a.m. You may also order the Official 2014 Season T-shirt for $15. Students can visit mgoblue.com/tickets and click on Student Tickets to access their account. If you are unable to access your account, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information: Student ID Number, Name, Permanent Address, Campus (Ann Arbor, Dearborn or Flint), and Date of Birth. You will be notified by email when your account is ready to activate.
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:
- 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.
- Returning seniors/grad school students
- Returning juniors
- Returning sophomores
- Returning freshmen
- 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.

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

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: Away game tickets are available for returning students only.
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 2014 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.
