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

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.

Opt-out Eligibility

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.
