Spring U-Pass Distribution
All day division students who are considered full-time for the spring 2005 semester will receive a U-Pass, which provides unlimited rides on the CTA from January 28 - May 20, 2005. Status as a full-time student is determined by your official division status and not by the number of credit hours you take in a particular semester. If you qualify for a U-Pass and want to obtain it during the first available distribution, you must have been registered for spring classes by 5:00pm on December 17, 2004.

Spring U-Pass cards and new Chicago-Kent ID cards will be distributed in the Lobby on:
Thursday, January 13 at 12:00-3:00
Friday, January 14 at 12:00-3:00
Tuesday, January 28 at 11:30-1:00 and 4:30-6:00

Students will only be permitted to pick up their own U-Pass cards.

If you were not registered as a full-time student by December 17, 2004, you had a financial hold on your account on that date, or you did not have an ID picture on file in the Registrar's Office by that date, you will not receive a U-Pass during this initial distribution period. Students who qualify for the U-Pass after December 17 or were not included in the initial spring U-Pass request sent to CTA will have passes ordered for them on January 24, 2005. We expect these passes to arrive at the law school by February 2, 2005.

Health Insurance Enrollment for Spring
It is not too late to enroll in the Student Health Insurance Plan through IIT. The spring coverage period is from January 13-August 14, 2005. You must enroll by January 26, 2005. Please submit an online enrollment form by January 26, 2005. For more information about the student health insurance plan, please visit IIT's Student Health Center website or the Health Insurance FAQ.

Waiving/Canceling Health Insurance for the Spring
Any student (day or evening division) enrolled for 12 or more credits in the spring, will be automatically enrolled in student health insurance. If you have your own insurance coverage, you can waive student health insurance by completing the online waiver form by January 26, 2005. If you previously waived student health insurance, the waiver will remain on your account indefefinitely unless you re-enrolled in the plan after you submitted that waiver. If you are on a F1 or J1 visa, you cannot waive student health insurance.

If you were enrolled in student health insurance in the fall and no longer want the coverage either because you have another insurance plan or are now registered for less than 12 credits, you can cancel student health insurance for the spring by contacting Melody Jack at by January 26, 2005. You will receive a refund on your account for the spring.
