Faculty/Staff seating requests will be evaluated based on priority points calculated as follows:
Priority points will increment by 10 through the levels, with 10 being the lowest number of points assigned for rank/paygrade and 150 the highest number of points. In addition, each customer will be rewarded 5 points for each year of continuous purchase of season tickets. This priority system is depicted as follows:
|Priority Level||Grades||Points Assigned|
|2||4, 5, 6||20|
|3||7, 8, 9||30|
|6||901, 902, 903||60|
|7||904, 905, 906||70|
|9||909, 910, 911||90|
With five points being assigned for each year of purchase, employees gain a priority level every two years. For example, an employee with Priority Level 3 and 10 years of purchase will be assigned seating similar to a new employee at Priority Level 8.
Years of purchase will be calculated on a 1982 base year (this is the earliest year for which there are accurate records). For Faculty/Staff members with like priorities, years of service to the University will also be taken into consideration.
Group seating will be accommodated based on the Faculty/Staff members with the lowest point total in the group.
Retired employees maintain the same priority level they held during employment; however, tickets must have been purchased for 10 consecutive years prior to retiring to retain them.
Surviving spouse of current/retired employees will retain purchase privileges for a period of 5 years, and be assigned the same seating priority as was maintained by the employee.
Volunteer and Courtesy Appointments will continue to be provided the opportunity to purchase two tickets at full-rate. they will be assigned the lowest leve of priority for seating purposes.
Part-time employees will be offered the opportunity to purchase two tickets at full-rate if the allotment of tickets is not sold out to full-time employees. They will be assigned the lowest level of priority for seating purposes.
