Priority Point Program

The Priority Points Program is a comprehensive measure of your support for the University and Michigan Athletic Department. It provides a framework for the equitable allocation of donor experiences, such as eligibility for tickets and parking.
Your annual giving level for the 2013-14 academic year is based on your donations to Michigan Athletics between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013. Throughout the year, we will have three Priority Point deadlines in order to incorporate current giving into your opportunities to experience Michigan Athletics.


Point Cutoff Dates:

November 15, 2013 Deadline for Football postseason ticket eligibility and allocation 
January 31, 2014 Deadline for PSD renewal, Men’s Basketball postseason ticket allocation and 2014 Football season ticket and parking allocation 
June 30, 2014 Deadline to determine: 2014-15 Giving Level; Men’s Basketball season ticket and parking allocation, 2014 Football and Men’s Basketball ticket pack and individual game ticket eligibility
