To purchase, follow the instructions below! 

1 Student Season Package – 7 Games for $82 (1 Ticket)

2 Student Season Package – 7 Games for $154 (2 Tickets)

Ordering Guidelines

Student Season Ticket Option: Each student will be given the opportunity to order 2 Full Season Packages (7 games). The Student Season Package will be $82 for 1 ticket or $154 for 2 tickets (which includes a one-time $10 non-refundable processing fee.)

Student basketball tickets will go on sale separately in the Fall. However, those students who purchase football tickets will have the first opportunity to purchase basketball season tickets. It is highly likely if you do NOT purchase football season tickets, you will not receive basketball tickets.

By being a season ticket holder, you can also potentially have the right to purchase post-season tickets first!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I need to show my Student ID at the football games?

No, graduate students who purchase tickets through the graduate school lottery are exempt from showing their student ID at home football games.

Where will my tickets be located?

Graduate students will receive an assigned seat in sections 217-220, based on the timing of your purchase. You will be seated with other members of your graduate school. We do not accept any other additional requests to sit with another student. Students who want to sit together need to purchase together.

How do I redeem my ticket on game day?

A detailed information will be sent to those who purchase prior to the first home football game. We hope to give graduate students access to print their tickets at home, from their My Student Cardinal Account. Again, more detailed information will be sent a later date.

Is there an 80% rule, and does it apply to graduate students?

No, there is currently not any attendance policies and those students who purchase through the graduate school lottery are exempt from those policies.
