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 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
cards and new Chicago-Kent ID cards will be distributed
in the Lobby on:
Thursday, January 12 at 12:00-3:00
Friday, January 13 at 12:00-3:00
Tuesday, January 17 at 11:30-1:00 and 4:30-6:00
Students will only be permitted to pick up their own U-Pass
If you were not registered as a full-time, day division
student by December 16, 2005, 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 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.
