Priority System

 

The NCC and athletics department utilizes a priority system to provide a fair process to allocate tickets and to provide other donor benefits such as post-season ticket purchasing opportunities. This system rewards active NCC members for their gifts as well as consecutive years of membership.

NCC members are placed in groups that help efficiently and transparently allocate tickets and other donor benefits.
Your group placement is determined by meeting at least one of the criteria listed in the chart below.
