Update - 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

If you were registered as a full-time student by 5:00pm
on December 16, 2005, you will be eligible to pick up your
U-Pass during the first available distribution. Spring
U-Pass distribution will take place on January 12, 13, and
17. 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

Students who qualify for the U-Pass after December 16 or

2006. We expect these passes to arrive at the law school
by Feburary 1, 2006.
