During the Winter term of 2016, both undergraduate and graduate students voted to extend the U-Pass program to Carleton’s Summer term (May 1 to August 30). The Summer U-Pass is a compulsory fee for all students who are eligible, including students who are living in residence, who are in walking distance or who drive to campus.
The Summer U-Pass differs from the Fall-Winter U-Pass in one significant way. To be eligible for the Summer U-Pass you need to be registered in 1.0 credits whereas for the Fall-Winter U-Pass you need to be registered in 1.5 credits. Graduate students who are designated as “full-time” are also eligible for the U-Pass.
When riding the buses or the Trillium Line, the Summer U-Pass functions in the same way as the Fall-Winter U-Pass. The Summer U-Pass cost is $192.70 plus a $4.26 administrative fee.
Some exceptions do apply to the program through the Opt-Out process.
