Priority Points


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

Priority Point System Policies


Eligibility

To earn and retain your priority points, your account must be active by maintaining your membership. If you have not renewed your membership, please click here to donate now.

Expiration

For individual donors, points expire upon death of the member and spouse. For corporate (business) memberships, points expire 10 years after the date earned.

Ranking

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.

All account holders shall have access to their account online in their Account Manager area located after logging in on www.12thmanfoundation.com. Each member’s online account shows their total priority points and ranking.

Each account holder’s priority points are calculated at the end of each day. This aids in determining your rank. Throughout the year, the Foundation will also post point snapshots.

Transfers

The 12th Man Foundation Priority Points are not property. Subject to the following exceptions, priority points may not be sold, transferred, or reassigned under any circumstances.

  • If two individuals (while legally married) have accounts in their individual capacities under different names, priority points accumulated by either spouse may be combined in one single joint account. The new joint account shall be re-calculated to reflect the overall point total of the previously held individual accounts. This rule shall only apply to married spouses and shall not include couples who are engaged or couples who live at the same residence.
  • In the event of a divorce, the 12th Man Foundation shall adhere to the specific order or instructions set forth in the marital settlement agreement or divorce decree and shall allocate priority points accordingly. If the allocation of priority points is not specifically addressed in a divorce decree, all priority points amassed during marriage shall be divided equally between the two spouses upon the written agreement between both parties.
  • Prior to or at the time an eligible gift is made, a donor may request that the priority points earned from said gift be credited to another individual or business entity. Once credited to another individual or entity, these points cannot be transferred further to any other individual or entity except under the other express provisions of this points system.
  • If a business entity dissolves or ceases to do business, the entity shall direct the 12th Man Foundation in writing, after the entity has compiled with the appropriate statutory requirements for winding up its affairs, how the priority points shall be allocated.
  • If the entity does not direct the 12th Man Foundation with respect to how the priority points shall be allocated within thirty (30) days of winding up its affairs, the priority points shall lapse and become non-transferable.
  • In the event an entity dissolves or ceases to do business and the entity has failed to direct how to re-allocate its priority points, the 12th Man Foundation may, on its own initiative determine whether individuals have been instrumental in the entity’s support of Texas A&M Athletics and allow a re-allocation of some or all the entity’s priority points.

Disclaimer

Decisions of the 12th Man Foundation are final

  • All decisions with the respect to formally submitted reviews are final.

Errors/Miscalculations

  • Errors in calculation of priority points will be promptly reviewed and corrected when brought to the attention of the 12th Man Foundation.

Not Liable for Losses or Damage

  • Under no circumstances shall the University, the Texas A&M Athletics Department, the 12th Man Foundation, the Texas A&M Lettermen’s Association, any of their affiliated organizations, or any of their officers, directors, agents, employees, or consultants be held liable for any loss or damage resulting from errors, whether intentional or negligent, including miscalculation or omissions, failure to correct errors, or the award or failure to award priority points or benefits in accordance with the Priority Points System.

Subject to Change without Notice

  • Priority points and procedures are subject to change without notice to account holders. Regardless of actual or constructive notice to account holders, all changes shall have immediate effect.

Loss of Account/NCAA Violations

  • Any donor, account holder, and/or 12th Man Foundation member who is found to be in violation of NCAA, affiliated conference or Texas A&M University rules or regulations is potentially subject to loss, suspension, denial or non-renewal of priority points. Donors disassociated from Texas A&M University because of action taken and upheld by the NCAA or the affiliated conference are not eligible to receive priority points during the period of their disassociation.
