CTA U-pass Program
The CTA U-pass allows full-time students of the School unlimited use of CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) bus, rail and para-transit transportation for the fall and spring semesters. When compared with regular CTA fares for a semester, the U-pass can provide over $200 worth in savings.
U-Passes are available each fall and spring semester to full-time students of the School.
U-Passes are valid 3 days prior to the start of the semester and last until 3 days after the semester ends. U-Passes are not offered during the winter and summer sessions.
The $105 U-Pass fee is mandatory for all full-time students. This fee will be charged to each full-time student’s tuition and fee account prior to the beginning of each fall and spring semester.
Only full-time students are eligible for the U-pass. If a student picks up a U-pass and then drops below full-time at the end of add/drop, or leaves the school, the U-Pass will be deactivated and the $105 fee will not be refunded.
Questions about the School’s CTA U-Pass Program may be directed to the ARTICard/U-Pass Office.
