PART 1:  ESTABLISHING TICKET PRICES


Subject to the requirements below, the Department of Athletics is authorized to establish all ticket prices and conditions for purchase for all intercollegiate athletic events at NMSU.

 

PART 2: FACULTY, STAFF AND RETIREE TICKETS


The Department of Athletics will provide football and basketball season tickets, in reserved sections, at a reduced rate to faculty, staff and retirees, subject to the following rules:

  1. Each employee is eligible to purchase a maximum of six football and six men’s basketball season tickets at the discounted rate;
  2. Purchases of discounted tickets will be subject to any required donation requirement imposed on other purchasers;
  3. The same privileges afforded to university employees shall be extended to official university retirees and their surviving spouses or domestic partners;
  4. All employee and retiree tickets are for the use of the employee and retiree and their family only, and shall not be transferred;
  5. Tickets are issued on a season by season basis;
  6. Reduced price tickets for both employees and retirees are provided in accordance with federal and state tax laws which may result in additional taxation for the purchaser; and

 

PART 3: STUDENT ADMISSION


Students who are not also regular employees of NMSU, and who are enrolled in at least one credit hour at NMSU-Las Cruces, or at an NMSU community college that has paid a negotiated fee for its students, and affiliated students for whom a negotiated fee has been paid on their behalf, will be admitted to intercollegiate athletic events on the NMSU campus free of charge, with the exception of conference or NCAA tournaments. NMSU employees are not eligible for free admission even if also registered as students. Enrollment status may be verified though an electronic scan of each student ID.

 

PART 4:  POST-SEASON TOURNAMENT TICKETS


Demand for post-season tournament tickets often exceeds the number of tickets made available to NMSU.  Accordingly, the Department of Athletics is responsible for developing and coordinating a plan for obtaining and selling the NMSU ticket allotment for the post-season tournament. NMSU is not obligated to provide a ticket allocation for any individual or group.  All parties who are not served by a university allocation of tickets will be responsible for getting their own post-season tournament tickets from the host institution.

 

PART 5:  TICKET SCALPING PROHIBITED


Ticket scalping consists of selling, offering for sale or attempting to sell any ticket, privilege, license, admission or pass to any college athletic event at a price greater than the price charged at the place of admission or printed on the ticket.  Ticket scalping relating to NMSU intercollegiate athletic events, and related to tickets procured by or through NMSU, is prohibited.
