DePaul students who meet the requirements will see a U-Pass Fee on their tuition account. Students are responsible for this fee regardless of benefit use or card pick-up. A U-Pass fee can be removed ONLY when a student's eligibility has changed on or before the last day to drop courses. Fee administration and removal is an automated process based on registration. The Ventra U-Pass is based on a CTA daily rate plus DePaul's administrative fee. View more details about the U-Pass Fee.
