MSU students get free admission to Missouri State Athletics Football, Volleyball, Men's Soccer and Women's Soccer games by simply showing their Bear Pass ID at the entry gate..  MSU students have to pay a discounted entry free for Missouri State Baseball games becuase it is played in an off-campus venue.  MSU students are eligible to receive a free ticket for Missouri State University basketball games at JQH Arena. The following policy details the pickup, distribution, and special regulations surrounding the tickets.

Missouri State Student Ticket Policy for Men's and Women's Basketball Games in JQH Arena

The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics will reserve lower level student bleacher seating and additional seats in the upper level in case the student bleachers fill up in JQH Arena for all Bears and Lady Bears games. Furthermore, JQH Arena Box Office will follow the below mentioned rules regarding the distribution of such tickets.

  1. Student Ticket Pick-Up: Missouri State students will be eligible to pick up single game reserved tickets in the student bleachers for Bears and Lady Bears games at the JQH Arena Box Office (or at any other location of Missouri State TIX, if it is open on that game day-call Missouri State TIX for locations and hours) as follows:
    1. A student is eligible to receive one ticket per Missouri State BearPass Card; however, it is permissible for a Missouri State student to present one other Missouri State BearPass Card in order to receive two (2) tickets. Each Missouri State student will also be required to present their BearPass Card at the student gate at the east entrance of JQH Arena to be admitted into the game.
    2. MSU student eligibility requirements: The Missouri State student must be currently enrolled in classes for the semester in which the student is attending the game. The MSU student must come in person to get the ticket or give the valid BearPass Card to another Missouri State student. MSU student athletes may not present their Missouri State BearPass Card in order to receive a free ticket for a game in which they are participating.
    3. Pick-up Times: The student bleacher tickets for all Bears and Lady Bears games will be available for pick-up on a first come first serve basis, beginning at 10am two days before each game. If any student tickets are still available on the day of a game, the athletic department staff reserves the right to sell such tickets earlier in the day.

Due to the fact that many students are out of town on University holidays, Missouri State reserves the right to sell a portion of the student tickets to the general public during holidays and breaks.

Missouri State students with valid tickets must enter the JQH Arena on the southeast side of the building (the main entrance) and must present their BearPass Card for verification.

Note that the Missouri State students do not receive free tickets to any special events or tournaments held at JQH Arena (i.e. the Women's MVC tournaments, Blue & Gold Tournament, concerts etc), away games in which Missouri State is playing at another site or to games that feature a team other than Missouri State.

Note that the box office management reserves the right to amend these policies at any time.
