All full-time School of Social Service Administration Master's and Doctoral students get a Chicago Public Transit Authority (CTA) U-Pass. The U-Pass program allows cardholders to enjoy unlimited rides on CTA trains and buses during the academic year. Students will be assessed a $100/quarter fee for U-Pass privileges. Due to CTA guidelines, part-time students are currently ineligible for the U-Pass program.
