Summer 2023 U-PASS

Dear UIC students, faculty and staff:

The Summer 2023 CTA U-PASS program will be similar to the spring semester. The current opt-in or opt-out status of students eligible for the U-PASS will carry over to the summer semester.

  • For Summer 2023, the CTA U-PASS will be available for any full-time summer session student and staff taking a summer course load.
  • Summer U-PASS will be active from May 10-Aug. 9.
  • Students that wish to activate the benefit must opt in. This benefit is only available to full-time (six or more credit hours for undergraduate/professional, five or more credit hours for graduate) summer session students.
  • The deadline to opt in for Summer 2023 U-PASS is July 4 at 11:59 p.m.
  • The deadline to opt out for Summer 2023 U-PASS is June 20 at 11:59 p.m. After June 20, the status cannot change for the duration of the summer session. Please note that no exceptions can be made to missing the deadline.
  • Students who drop below full-time status prior to the add/drop deadline will have their U-PASS deactivated.
  • Students who opt in but are not registered as full-time students will not be eligible and will not be assessed the fee.

We encourage all students to review their current status. Students obtaining a new U-PASS for the summer session can request delivery. For students with existing U-PASS cards, the standard policies on lost/replacement cards will still be enforced.
