The football student ticketing article published in the April 17 edition of the Technique.

2009 Georgia Tech Football Student Ticket Policy

The GTAA and SGA have partnered to develop a process that will alleviate confusion and provide a more systematic procedure for student ticketing. The process is being developed with two main tenets: 1) allow all Georgia Tech students equal opportunity to attend every GT home game, and 2) procedural efficiency in order to fill the stands with students wearing White & Gold!

Georgia Tech students must meet one of the following criteria to be eligible to claim/purchase a student ticket for games at Bobby Dodd Stadium:

1.  Must be an enrolled full-time student
2.  Graduate/Intern/Co-Op/Part-Time students must verify Athletic Fee payment through the Bursar's Office

The list of eligible students is provided to the GTAA by GT Registrar. This list is refreshed and uploaded nightly - therefore, students submitting Athletic Fee payment to the Bursar's Office may not register for tickets until the following business day.

  • Students are eligible to receive one (1) ticket to each Georgia Tech home football game
  • A total of 9000 student tickets will be available
Online registration information is located at the bottom of this Student Ticket Policy document. You are encouraged to carefully read the entire document in order to identify which ticket option best suites your needs and to verify all necessary steps for registration!

Go Jackets!

Eligible students have two options for student tickets at Bobby Dodd Stadium:


  • Approximately 6000 reserved season tickets will be available.
  • The cost of a reserved season ticket is $36. See below for payment details.
  • A valid student Buzzcard is all that is required for admittance - there will be no actual ticket.
  • All reserved season tickets will be located in the lower North Endzone between sections 112 & 120.
  • Enter @ Gate 7 (Bobby Dodd Way - Callaway Plaza)
  • Reserved season ticket holders will receive a `seat reservation' card at the beginning of the season that identifies their exact seat location.
  • All reserved season ticket holders MUST select a `Group' upon registration.
  • Payment will only be collected on a group basis (ie - Every group leader will submit 1 payment for the entire group. No payment will be made online individually.)
  • GT students wishing to purchase reserved season tickets have 3 options for group selection
          1)   Register as part of an organizational group - see below for details on group registration and sign-up procedures
    Join The Swarm 
          3)   Register individually and become a `Helluva Student Ticket' group member (details below)
  • Similar to 1st & 10 priority seating in previous seasons, organizations will have the option to register a Group for members to join and receive a reserved seat for the entire season. All groups must be 'pre-registered' prior to any member signing up for the group online. To register, please complete the following information and email to studenttickets@athletics.gatech.edu:

    Group Name:
    Phone Number:
    Estimated Group Size (minimum of 10 members):

    Upon group registration, group leaders will receive a confirmation email with group member registration information, important dates & FAQ's. The last day to register a Group is Friday, August 21st.

    Students who register for reserved season tickets with a registered organizational group are responsible for submitting $36 payment to their group leader. The group leader will then submit 1 payment to the Ticket Office for the entire group at the Group Leader Meeting on September 1st.

  • Group Locations: Organizations will have `right of refusal' to retain the same seats as last season. Relocation requests will be accepted and evaluated based on availability. GTAA reserves the right to relocate groups.
  • A minimum of ten (10) members is required in order to reserve a group. 

  • Helluva Student Ticket Group
    • Reserved season ticket targeted towards students not affiliated with a group organization, yet wishing to purchase a reserved season ticket
    • Lower North Endzone - section 118
    • Payment of $36 is due to the Ticket Office by September 2nd. At this time you will receive your individual seat reservation for the season.

  • Student season tickets will utilize a priority-registration system based on earned credit hours (provided by GT Registrar). The registration timeline is as follows:

      Hours Earned  Online Registration Open    Tickets Available  
    90+Friday, August 14th @ 8:00am~1500
    60+Sunday, August 16th @ 8:00am~1500

    1. Reserved Season Ticket for every home game
    2. A-T priority point credit for a $36 donation
