Incidental Fee
Incidental fees are prescribed under state law to pay for the “cultural and physical development” of students enrolled at an Oregon University System institution. Laws governing them also require a role for students in determining their cost, and at the University of Oregon, that takes the form of the student government, the Associated Students of the University of Oregon. The ASUO budgets the fee to student groups, and non-student organizations that provide services to students, and submits that budget to the University president, who in turn submits it to the Oregon State Board of Higher Education for approval. Among the services paid for with the incidental fee: student tickets to football and men’s basketball games, bus passes for all students through the Lane Transit District, the Erb Memorial Union building and its upkeep, round-the-clock library service, late-night student shuttle service, and campus media including the Emerald, the campus radio station KWVA and the Oregon Commentator.

Football Tickets
The Sunday before each game students can go to to reserve tickets. Students must first sign up for an account, and can request a ticket during their respective distribution time, which is organized by class. Freshmen claim tickets from 10 a.m. to noon, sophomores from noon to 2 p.m., juniors from 2 to 4 p.m., seniors from 4 to 6 p.m. and graduate and law students from 6 to 8 p.m. Each class is designated a specific number of tickets. Once all the tickets are claimed, the reserving session is closed until the next time slot opens for the following class. If you know you can not attend the game you can return the ticket through by logging in and following the posted instructions. You must return the ticket by the Wednesday prior to the game, or it counts as an unused ticket. Don’t bother trying to pass it on to a friend; he or she won’t be admitted to the game and your ID card will be confiscated. If you didn’t get a ticket during your class time slot there is a second chance; returned or unclaimed tickets become available the Wednesday before the game at 5 p.m. The same procedure applies as general reservations. To enter games students only need to have their valid student I.D. With the new ticketing system comes new rules regarding no shows. Remember that if a student reserves a ticket but does not show up to the game, he or she forfeits the opportunity to go to the next home game as well. Students who appear at every home game will receive first priority for reserving Civil War tickets. Note: Fewer student tickets are released for games held before the beginning of the fall term.

If The Duck Store seems like it is charging a wing and a leg for textbooks, there are other places to go to that won’t break the bank as badly. Be sure when buying used books online or in store that the edition and volume match the required textbook for class; take your syllabus to the store.
