How to Purchase Student Tickets

relax_its_easyThe Athletics Department released more information this morning about how student ticket sales will be conducted for the 2009-10 season. Season student tickets will cost $247.00.

The process differs little from last year, even though paper tickets are being discontinued.

Step One: Create a Ticketmaster Account
Before you do anything, check your email archives to see what if you created a Ticketmaster account last year. If you did, hopefully you remember the password (though the password reset process is pretty easy).

If you didn’t create a Ticketmaster account last year, that should be the first thing you do. Head on over to the Ticketmaster site. Basic contact information is all that’s required for this step, though you can add your credit card information now to save time later.

Step Two: Pre-Registration
All students (except incoming freshman and transfer students) must pre-register. Pre-registration is kind of silly. It’s just like regular purchasing– you enter your student ID and credit card information– but you’re not purchasing anything. It seems to be just a way for the powers that be to load test the system.

To pre-register, go to this Ticketmaster site between May 27 at 8:00 AM through May 31 at 5:00 PM.

Step Three: Purchase Tickets
Student tickets will be sold over a five day period. Students will be allowed to purchase tickets on days assigned to their specific semester standing.

If you have more than 91.1 credits (senior), you will be allowed to purchase on Monday June 22 at 7:00 am.
If you have between 59.1 and 91 credits (junior), you will be allowed to purchase on Tuesday June 23 at 7:00 am.
If you have between between 27.1 and 54 credits (sophomore), you will be allowed to purchase on Wednesday June 24 at 7:00 am.
If you have less than 27.1 credits (freshman), you will be allowed to purchase on Thursday June 25 at 8:00 pm.
If you are a graduate student, you will be allowed to purchase on Friday June 26 at 7:00 am.

All sales will be accessible at this Ticket master site.

Tips

Add your billing information to your Ticketmaster account before the day of the sale. This will make it a little less stressful during that early morning crunch.

Don’t bother going to the site before the time the sale is supposed to begin. You’ll just frustrate yourself, and run the risk of getting lost in the shuffle (don’t ask me how, it just happens).

Do you have any more? Leave them in the comments and we’ll add them to the post.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
