Priority Seating Information

    Friar Points are calculated as follows:

    The priority point system and ticketing
    The Priority Point System is designed as a way for the Athletic Department to reward a donor's loyalty. The system awards a point for every dollar given annually to the Athletic Department and a half point for every dollar given annually to the College. The points are then used to determine the order for season ticket upgrade request as well as the ability to obtain tickets to away games and tournament play, based upon availability.

    The points are cumulative and valid for a four-year cycle. At the conclusion of the fourth year all points are erased and the system begins again.
