The Aggie Access Priority Point Program provides a fair and transparent method for determining donor priority and guiding the distribution of benefits. It recognizes our donors' commitment to Aggie Athletics by honoring and rewarding their generous financial support and passion for Texas A&M. Donors receive points for charitable giving, season ticket purchases, service and loyalty.
Benefits of Priority Points
Assignment of Away and Post Season Tickets
The 12th Man Foundation uses priority ranking in the assignment of away and postseason game tickets. Donors and season ticket holders who are active members of the 12th Man Foundation have the opportunity to purchase tickets for these events based on availability and their priority ranking.
The 12th Man Foundation uses priority ranking when considering requests for new or additional or upgraded season tickets for all sports, including requests for premium seating areas and suites.

The 12th Man Foundation uses priority ranking when extending invitations to special events or offering any other benefits, as deemed appropriate by the 12th Man Foundation Board of Trustees.

For individual donors, points expire upon death of the member and spouse. For corporate (business) memberships, points expire 10 years after the date earned.
Seating for all ticketed sports is based on your ranking.
Ranking determines future ticket allocation and seating priority for all ticketed sports as well as parking assignments when applicable.
