Important Announcement from U-Pass: Grad students studying outside Metro Vancouver

August 24, 2012

For current students who are moving back to Metro Vancouver for the Fall term, here is an important message from the U-Pass office:

Please do not change your mailing address in goSFU to be a local (Metro Vancouver) address until September 1, otherwise you will be assessed the full U-Pass fee ($120) for the Summer 2012 term.

 If you have recently changed your mailing address, including postal code to be local (inside Metro Vancouver), please immediately change it back to the out-of-town address AND email informing you've made this change to avoid this Summer 2012 U-Pass fee.  

In terms of your Fall 2012 U-Pass pickup, if you have registered for on-campus courses for the Fall 2012 semester in Metro Vancouver, you will be able to pick up your September pass starting August 21 (regardless of the location of your mailing address).

If you will continue to be outside Metro Vancouver, no changes are required - you should leave your mailing address (including postal code) as an out-of-town address until January 1, 2013.
