Priority Points

Gonzaga uses a point system to determine access to special events and assigning seat locations throughout the year.

Earning Points
Donors receive points by:

  • $100 donation to Athletics = 1 point
    • Beginning June 1, 1994
  • $1,000 donation to University (non-athletic giving) = 1 point
    • Maximum of 100 points
    • 1 bonus point for every $1,000 above $500,000
  • 5-year Athletics gift commitment = 1 point for every $100 pledged
  • Men's Basketball season ticket holder = 1 point for each year with season tickets
    • 10 bonus points for every 10 years as men's basketball season ticket holder
  • Women's Basketball season ticket holder = 1 point for each year with season tickets
    • Beginning with 2004-05 season

Points are rounded to a second decimal point for final calculations.

Priority Point Groups
Priority point groups are utilized in determining access to certain Athletic events and are assigned to donors based on their overall priority point standing.

  • Approximately, the groups are broken down by:
    • Top 5%: 2,247+ points
    • 6 - 15%: 677-2,246 points
    • Remaining 85%: 50-676 points
Final date to accure points for NCAA Tournament ticket allocation is January 31
