Summer 2024 U-PASS

Dear UIC students, faculty and staff:

The Summer 2024 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 2024, the CTA U-PASS will be available for any full-time summer session student and staff taking a summer course load.
  • The Summer U-PASS will be active from May 8-Aug. 7.
  • Students who wish to activate the benefit must opt in. This benefit is only available to full-time summer session students (six or more credit hours for undergraduate/professional, five or more credit hours graduate students, including School of Public Health).
  • The deadline to opt in for the Summer 2024 U-PASS is July 2 at midnight.
  • The deadline to opt out for the Summer 2024 U-PASS is June 11.
  • After June 11, the status cannot change to out for the duration of the summer session.
  • Students who drop below full-time status prior to the add/drop deadline will have their U-PASS deactivated.
  • Students who opt in and 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 should be sure they have an i-card photo on file to order the U-PASS. For students with existing U-PASS cards, the standard policies on lost/replacement cards will still be enforced.
