Spring 2022 U-PASS Opt-Out

Dear UIC students, faculty and staff:

For Spring 2022, students will have the option to opt-out of the CTA U-PASS program. This benefit is available to part-time (6-11 credit hours for undergraduate, graduate, professional), and full-time (12+ credit hours) students.

  • The Spring U-PASS will be active from Jan. 5 – May 11 (dates for the College of Medicine are Dec. 29-Apr. 27 and the College of Dentistry is Dec. 29-May 4).
  • The deadline to opt-out for the Spring U-PASS is Jan. 30, at 11:59 p.m. CDT.
  • After Jan. 30, the opt-status cannot change for the duration of the spring session.
  • Students who drop below part-time status prior to the add/drop deadline will have their U-PASS deactivated.
  • All students are opted-in by default unless otherwise specified by the student at the website below, and a mandatory fee of $163 ($175 for College of Medicine) will be applied to student accounts after the start date.
  • Students that opt-out may see the U-PASS fee assessed on their university bill, but that charge will be reversed within 7-10 business days. (There will be no fee removed if students opt-out before the fee is assessed to the student account.)

In order to opt-out and not receive the Spring 2022 U-PASS benefit, students can confirm that they wish to opt-out at: https://go.uic.edu/spring_upass. For students with existing U-PASS cards, the standard policies on lost/replacement cards will still be enforced.
