2.8.4. Admission Tickets


Admissions to all events which require a fee must be by ticket only.

The advertising and accountability for all such events shall be the responsibility of the sponsoring organization.

Each department staging an event which requires an admission fee must have an appropriate account and have a departmental representative to be responsible for the handling of all ticket functions.

All tickets are to be issued through the Central Ticket Office or the Rozsa Center Ticket Office. Ticket offices may act as advance ticket sales outlets when called upon by the sponsoring organization.

A list of all persons receiving complimentary tickets and the requesting department must be compiled and signed by the departmental representative. Each department will be charged for those tickets requested.

All tickets at advance ticket sales outlets should be obtained by noon on the day (Friday for weekend activities) of the activity and be made available for box office sales. All unsold tickets are to be returned to the Central Ticket Office.
