Spring U-Pass Distribution
All day division students who are considered full-time for
the spring 2006 semester will receive a U-Pass, which provides
unlimited rides on the CTA from January 17 - May 19, 2006.
Status as a full-time student is determiend by your official
division status, and not be 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 be registered for spring classes
by 5:00pm on December 16, 2005.
Spring U-Pass distribution will begin a few days prior
to the start of spring semester classes. The exact times
and locations for Spring U-Pass Distribution will be announced
in the Record and an email sent during Winter Break. Students
will only be permitted to pick up their own U-Pass cards.
If you are not registered as a full-time, day division
student by December 16, 2005, you have a financial hold
on your account on that date, or you do not have an ID picture
on file in the Registrar's Office by that date, you will
not receive a U-Pass during the initial distribution period.
Students who qualify for the U-Pass after December 16 or
were not included in the initial spring U-Pass request sent
to CTA will have passes ordered for them on January 23,
2006. We expect these passes to arrive at the law school
by Feburary 1, 2006.
