The U-Pass provides unlimited usage of regular service (excluding special event, contracted and charter service) from Edmonton Transit System, St. Albert Transit, and Strathcona County Transit during the fall term (Sep. 1 - Dec. 31) and winter term (Jan. 1 - Apr. 30) to eligible students.
Who is Eligible
Full-time students of NorQuest College that have paid the on-campus Students’ Association fee and are taking classes within the Edmonton City limits are eligible and are automatically enrolled in the mandatory U-Pass program offered by the Students’ Association of NorQuest College. The fee will be applied when students register for Fall or Winter Term classes.
The cost of the mandatory U-Pass to each eligible student is $170 per term for each of the fall and winter terms in the academic year ($340 per academic year). There is no spring term U-Pass. Fees are non-refundable once the U-Pass sticker is issued. Lost or stolen U-Pass stickers can be replaced at a pre-determined pro-rated amount. Contact the Students' Association for more information about lost or stolen U-Pass stickers.
Students who have a valid CNIB registration, DATS, Mobility Bus, or Handibus registration, work for one of the transit services, have a practicum or all classes outside of the service area for longer than eight consecutive weeks, or have received a U-Pass from another participating institution may be eligible to opt out of the U-Pass. Contact the Students’ Association for more information.
Students will not be eligible for U-Pass if they register after the last day for payment of term fees:
Thursday, Sept 8 for fall term and Friday, Jan 13 for winter term.
U-Pass Sticker Pick-up
Eligible students who have paid all their fees and who have obtained a NorQuest ID card will be able to start picking up their U-Pass sticker in the Students’ Association office starting August 15.
