PRIORITY POINTS In an effort to provide greater support for UND student-athletes we are re-launching the Fighting Sioux Club Priority Points system for the 2010-11 year. The Fighting Sioux Club Priority Points system is a tool for allocating Fighting Sioux Club benefits providing a systematic, orderly and equitable process to prioritize requests for: season ticket relocations, away game ticket requests, postseason tickets and other benefits. The bottom line? It rewards loyalty and financial support of UND Athletics. Priority Points are determined by: 1. Current year gift to Fighting Sioux Club: 6 pts per $100 given (membership & tips) 2. Cumulative athletic Impact Scholarship: 3 pts per $100 given 3. Cumulative athletic giving history: 3 pts per $100 given (includes past Fighting Sioux Club, athletic endowment, athletic facilities, and other athletic gifts through the UND Foundation) 4. UND Letterwinner: 10 pts 5. UND Alumni: 10 pts
