Student Football Ticket

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 $175 plus a $10 service charge (includes seven home games) beginning on Monday, June 1, at 8:30 a.m. New this year, the Official 2015 Season T-shirt is included at no extra charge. Shirts may be picked up at any M-Den store in late August.

To order, login to mgoblue.com/tickets (Student Tickets). 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. You will receive on-screen and emailed confirmations upon successful completion of your order. Retain these as documentation of your order until you receive your tickets.

If you are unable to access your account, please send an e-mail to mtickets@umich.edu 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.

Student basketball and hockey tickets will also be available for purchase. Student basketball tickets are $200 and student hockey tickets are $150.

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. Students who qualify will receive a partial refund of their ticket cost in September once financial aid awards are finalized.

DEADLINE: FRIDAY, JUNE 19, at 5 p.m.

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 2015 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.

2015 SEATING: Reserved seat locations will be assigned based on student priority points from the prior season. 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 -- 3 points
  • Attending the game -- 3 points

Students can earn up to 36 points for the 2015 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 priority points. Thus, only 6 of the 7 games will be calculated for priority points. Priority points earned will be applied to the 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 priority point status (e.g. if 700 students have 36 points, they will be randomly seated within that priority).

Groups can be formed with a minimum of 2 students and a maximum of 100 students. These groups will be assigned seating based on the average priority point total of all group members. In the past, seating was based on the lowest student in the group.

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

Please note that new incoming students cannot be seated with returning students.

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.

TRACK YOUR PRIORITY POINTS ONLINE: Use your 8-digit ID number and password to sign in to your online student ticket account at mgoblue.com/tickets (My Account). By choosing "View My Student Priority Points" you can see the time you were scanned in at each football game as well as the number of points earned. Questions regarding points earned must be emailed to the Michigan Athletic Ticket Office at mtickets@umich.edu by Wednesday at 5 p.m. of the same week. All questions will be resolved by Friday at 5 p.m.

TICKET TRANSFER: You may give your ticket to another U-M student, who may use his or her ID to be admitted to the stadium. Electronic ticket transferring (via email) is available under My Account beginning in August. Students are responsible for correctly transferring their ticket and bringing the correct ticket to the game. Post-game priority points will not be granted in the event a transfer is done incorrectly. The deadline to transfer your ticket is three (3) hours prior to the game. 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. Student tickets must be validated to be used by a non-student.

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.

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 2015 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, 2015. You may also fax or mail the change of address form to the Ticket Office by June 1, 2015. 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 21, 2015, 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. 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). The price of a validation sticker for Michigan State and Ohio State is $60 and the other five home games are $40.

H.A.I.L: Learn about our student loyalty program where you can get rewarded for attending Athletic events, including Football. 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 ]

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 2015 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, 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.
