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 cards.

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.
