UPASS

If you still need to pick up your UPASS come to the GSA Commons Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm with your student card.

 The Term 2 UPASS will expire April 30, 2014 at midnight.  To reactivate your UPASS for Spring and Summer Term (May - Aug), you must be registered for Spring and Summer classes. Visit the GSA Commons beginning Tuesday April 22, 2014 to reactivate your pass. Dedicated UPASS staff will be in the office Monday - Friday, 9:00am-12:30pm and 1:30pm-5:00pm.

To pick up your UPASS, please bring your student ID card to the GSA commons (Emmanuel & St. Chad, 1337 College Drive).  For more information about the UPASS, please email gsa.upass@usask.ca.

** Please make sure that you are registered for BOTH SPRING AND SUMMER TERMS before picking up your pass.  Our system may take up to 3 days to show that you have registered.**
