Also, please note that the Spring 2013 U-Pass BC exemption application deadline is Friday, January 11, 2013.

For current students who are moving back to Metro Vancouver for the Spring 2013 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 January 3, 2013, otherwise you will be assessed the full U-Pass fee ($120) for the Fall 2012 term.

In terms of your Spring 2013 U-Pass pickup, if you have registered for on-campus course(s) for the Spring term in Metro Vancouver, you will be able to pick up your January U-Pass starting Dec 10, 2012 (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 May 1, 2013.
