*All Passes Deactivate at 11:59pm on the Deactivation Date listed. All Passes activate at in the early morning of the date listed.

*Passes are valid for 5 years. Lost or stolen U-Pass will incur a $50 replacement fee
*Students who register late, may not have a pre-printed pass. These students must visit U-Pass Distribution to make sure passes are ordered and to receive a temporary transit pass. 

#Registration Deadline is the last day for new and existing students have to qualify for U-Pass in LOCUS  and have their U-Pass turned on by the  activation date. The U-Pass team will make every effort to activate the U-Pass benefit for qualifying students after this date but cannot guarantee activation.  Late registering students: After this date, students should expect their U-Passes activated 3-4 business days after they register as full-time students in LOCUS. Late registering students are encouraged to visit U-Pass distribution to get their existing U-Pass activated. 

#New Students only, The first week of classes, the U-Pass team will distribute new passes to students. Though we make every effort to have a permanent U-Pass available at distribution, CTA representatives are on site to make passes for students that qualify but there was insufficient time to produce a pre-printed pass. U-Pass Administration will attempt to notify all students of their status (pre-print or no pre-print) prior to distribution times. It is recommended all new students visit U-Pass distribution, times and dates are listed here
