Don’t throw away your U-Pass! If you have received a blue U-Pass, you must renew it at a recharging station.

Due to the validity of the U-Pass in the Fall (September 1 – April 30), eligible full-time students are charged the full amount in the Fall term.

This means that even if you are only registered for full-time courses in the Fall term, you will still be charged the full amount. If you aren’t full-time during the Winter term, you must submit an opt-out form before the refund deadline in order to obtain your Winter fee adjustment.

If you will be full-time only during the Winter term, then you will be charged the Winter term only.

Exemptions

If your student status changes (if you are now studying part time, or withdraw from University, etc.), you must submit an exemption request to obtain a credit.
