Roosevelt University has contracted with the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) to provide affordable public transportation to all degree seeking, full-time students at the Chicago Campus through the CTA U-Pass program. All eligible students will be charged a mandatory, non-refundable fee of $138.00 in each fall and spring semester. The U-Pass fee cannot be waived for full-time Chicago campus students.
Full time status for CTA U-Pass program is defined as:
12 or more credit hours per term for undergraduates
9 or more credit hours per term for graduate students
6 or more credit hours per term for doctoral students
After you have activated your card and registered it (recommended), if your card does not work on a CTA Bus or Rail/Pace, your card may be damaged or defective. You should first call 1-877-NOW-VENTRA to trouble-shoot the issue. If your card is defective, it can be replaced. Bring your defective card into the Registrar's Office (WB 1M14) and we will order you a new card. The first replacement is free, though subsequent replacements will be billed back to you ($4.97).
Current U-Pass holders: If you are returning in the spring semester, your U-Pass will be reactivated on Sunday, January 5, 2013. Please note: you must be registered full time by noon on Friday, January 3 for your U-Pass to work on Sunday, January 5.
New students can pick up their U-Passes during new student orientation. Undergraduate orientation takes place January 9 and graduate welcome day is January 11.
If you are unable to pick up your U-Pass during orientation, you can pick it up in the Office of the Registrar (WB 1M14).
Students must show their student ID and a copy of their schedule (electronic is acceptable) in order to receive a U-Pass.
For information about the distribution or use of the U-Pass, or if you have questions regarding your enrollment status or campus affiliation, please contact the Office of the Registrar at (312)341-2443.
Schaumburg students interested in requesting a U-Pass: Please fill out the Schaumburg U-Pass Request Form and return to the Student Accounts office of the Schaumburg Campus.
Fall 2013 U-Passes will be active until December 18, 2013. They will become active on January 5, 2014 for full-time students.
Visit the Registrar's Office on the Chicago Campus with your Roosevelt ID for a replacement U-Pass. Only one replacement per semester is permitted. There is a $50 fee for replacement.
