Cockpit Reward Points

Gamecock Athletics would not be the same without our loyal and enthusiastic student fans. As a thank you for your continued support of the Gamecocks, you will receive Cockpit Reward Points for each event you attend. The more events you attend, the more points you get. These points will unlock prizes including Under Armour gear and will help increase your chance of getting football tickets.


How to earn Cockpit Reward Points

There are multiple ways to earn Cockpit Reward Points. Your reward points will reset each year and you do not lose points for attending football games or redeeming prizes during a given year.

  1. Seniority Points – Each year at Carolina, you’ll start off with a set number of points based on your class standing.

    • Sophomore: 4 points
    • Junior/Graduate Students: 6 points
    • Senior: 8 points
  2. Rollover Points – Each year at Carolina, you’ll carry over 10% of your points from the previous year.

  • Will I ever lose points? Toggle content

    The goal of the Cockpit Rewards Program is for students to support their fellow students who are competing to help us create a home advantage. If we feel like students are taking advantage of this program and are leaving events early, we reserve the right to remove points for attending specific events.

    At the conclusion of each athletic year, reward points will be removed from all accounts. However, 10% of your points from that year will carry over into the next year (and will be updated in late August).

  • If I go to a football game or redeem a prize based on my point level, will I lose those points? Toggle content

    No. Points are used to determine who qualifies for a football ticket. You do not have to spend points to attend football events. We utilize a tiered point system for prizes. Once you reach a specific tier, the prize will be unlocked. You will not lose points for redeeming a prize.

  • What are the Cockpit Reward Prizes? Toggle content

    Reward prizes will be updated each year. You can check out the prizes in the Cockpit Rewards App by clicking on prizes at the bottom of the screen.
