Frequently Asked Questions

Tickets

Currently enrolled NSU students are eligible to receive one (1) ticket. Students will be assessed a $75.00 annual Fins Football refundable internal administrative processing fee, which will be refunded by February 2018 if the student adheres to the Terms and Condition of Fins Football.

If the student does not adhere to the Terms and Conditions of Fins Football, he/she will forfeit the $75.00 annual Fins Football refundable internal administrative processing fee and any future ticket/s that may already be reserved for upcoming games. Students who have forfeited their fee and any applicable future ticket/s will have another opportunity to attend games by resubmitting another $75.00 administrative processing fee and then trying to reserve or re-reserve ticket/s. There will be only one opportunity to submit a deposit after the initial (first) forfeiture.

NSU students who have reserved a ticket/s and are unable to attend a game will need to email finsfootball@nova.edu at least seven (7) days prior to game day in order to cancel their ticket reservation without penalty. Please see Fins Football Ticket reservation and cancellation schedule here for exact dates and times. Please do not call Ovation Tix to cancel your ticket/s.

Ticket/s cancelled after the specific game deadline date and time for any reason will be considered a forfeiture of your $75 Internal Administrative Processing Fee and any future ticket reservation/s held. There are no exceptions to cancelled tickets without forfeiture if the cancellation request is submitted after the specified deadline.

Employees who are also registered students are eligible to reserve tickets as a student and must adhere to the Fins Football Terms & Conditions.

Annual Fins Football Refundable Internal Administrative Processing Fee

The Annual Fins Football Refundable Internal Administrative Processing Fee is $75, which is due when you reserve a ticket for the first game you want to attend.

Why is the fee $75 instead of $50 as it was last year?

The fee has been increased to deter ticket reservations not being fulfilled. Students that reserve tickets and fail to cancel their tickets within the cancellation period are prohibiting their peers from reserving a ticket for themselves or a guest.

You can pay with a major credit card or debit card with credit card logo via your Fins Football account. Mastercard, Visa, and American Express are accepted.

The Refundable Internal Administrative Processing Fee is not on a per game basis. You will only have to submit the Refundable Internal Administrative Processing Fee one time unless there is a violation of the terms and conditions (see below). Should this happen, the $75 will be automatically forfeited and dependent on the violation, there may be an opportunity for you to attend future games by submitting another $75. 

What happens to my $75 when it is forfeited?

All forfeited funds are reinvested into the FinsFootball experience (food, giveaways, games and additional tickets).
