Student Fee Definitions

Chicago Transit Authority U-Pass
The U-Pass is a discount fare card that can be used for unlimited rides on all CTA buses and trains. All full-time students are required to participate in the U-Pass program and may not opt out. (Please note: We regret that although many part-time students commute via the CTA, due to the CTA's structuring of the program part-time students are unable to participate.)

Student Health Insurance
All students registered for at least 1 credit hour, regardless of their division, are required to have health insurance and will automatically be billed for student health insurance for the year unless they provide proof of other health insurance coverage.
