About the Ordering Process
Is the ordering process safe? If you’re ordering tickets online or over the phone, you can rest assured that your personal information is safe. The Council uses a secure web-based system to manage ticket orders, and once processed, all card information is erased. While this makes the ticket ordering process more secure, it also means that you will have to resubmit payment information should you decide to purchase additional tickets at a later date.
What if I want the same seats I had in years past? We value our longtime Series Subscribers and will do everything we can to ensure that you get the seats you want! If you are interested in obtaining the same seats you’ve held in previous years, we ask that you be sure to order your tickets before the "Same Seats Deadline" which will be announced at the start of each season.
When and how will I receive my tickets? Tickets can either be mailed or held at will call for pick-up the night of the first event.
What if I need wheelchair accessibility? If you would like to order tickets and require special accommodations, we ask that you call our offices directly at 503-306-5252 to discuss your options. Nearly all ticket levels are wheelchair accessible so consider what ticket level you would like, give us a call, and we’ll help you find a seat! For your reference, there is a seating chart available for viewing on this site.
Are tickets refundable? Once tickets have been mailed, no refunds will be made. If you would like to donate a purchased ticket you cannot use back to the Council for student use, please call 503-306-5252.
Can I order tickets after the first event has taken place? Yes. Series subscriptions will be available for purchase throughout the 2013 ISS season. With each passing lecture, prices will be adjusted to represent the remaining number of speakers.
