To be eligible you must be a full-time undergraduate student registered in three courses for the Fall or Winter Terms or two courses for the Summer Term (including Spring Intersession), or a graduate student with full-time status.
Students who are issued the UPass when their status is full-time and subsequently change their status to part-time are no longer considered eligible to use the UPass program. Students are required to return this sticker to the Parking and Transportation services counter within 7 days of their status change. Failure to return this sticker will result in a hold placed on the student account. Students that change their status from part-time to full-time must wait 48 hours for the change to appear in the system before they can obtain a UPass.
Co-operative Education, Internship and Distance Education Students
Co-operative education, internship and distance education students are not automatically assessed the UPass fee (during the terms away from campus), but are eligible to have the fee added for the applicable session(s) (Fall, Winter or Summer). To do so, make sure you are registered in a COOP or INTE course; contact Enrolment Services to have the UPass fee added to your student account and after the system is updated (1-2 days), the UPass sticker may be picked up at the Tech Shop. If you are registered in a course at the University of Calgary while you are on a work term, you will automatically be assessed the compulsory UPass fee.
