    Priority Points

    Accumulative Points | Non-Accumulative Points | Priority Point Spotlight

    Priority points determine seat location for season ticket holders at football and men's basketball games. The Indiana University Priority Point Policy was designed to ensure proper and equitable consideration for the loyalty and financial support of thousands of IU fans wishing to attend athletic events. The Priority Point Policy is the guideline used for the assignment of season tickets available for Indiana University football and basketball games.

    All Varsity Club members accumulate priority points in a number of ways including annual giving campaign donations, longevity as a Varsity Club member, season ticket purchases, gifts to other areas of IU, etc.

    Seats are assigned based on the total number of points each Varsity Club member has accumulated. Point accumulation totals are tallied twice a year based on the renewal deadlines for football and basketball season tickets. For football, the deadline is typically set around March 15 of each year. For basketball, the deadline is around June 30 of each year.

    The IU Hoosiers Priority Point Policy is reviewed annually and is subject to change. View PDF of IU Priority Points Get Acrobat Reader
