U-Pass is mandatory for all credit students at NAIT with the following exceptions:
- Students who take all of their classes online
All qualified students are automatically charged a U-Pass fee for the Fall & Winter terms.
HOW MUCH DOES U-PASS COST ?
For the 2013-14 school year U-Pass will cost $147.50 per Fall and Winter term. U-Pass offers significant savings for students who take transit, as the cost of a post secondary bus pass for 2013-14 would total $324.00 per semester.
