To opt in to the UPass for the fall term, you must visit the DalCard Office (6230 Coburg Road, Howe Hall) and provide proof that you are on an approved work term in the Halifax Regional Municipality. They will provide you with a sticker and charge your student account. Stickers are available beginning the week of August 26th.
To prove your work term details, you can either:
- (recommended) print a copy of your approved work term record to take with you to the DalCard Office as proof.
- login to myCareer and show your approved work term on your phone at the DalCard Office.
To print your work term record:
- Login to myCareer, click on Management Career Services.
- Scroll down to locate your co-op sequence on the right-hand side of the screen
- Click the link for the appropriate work term to access your work term record.
- Click the blue Print Work Term Detail button that appears to generate a copy of your work term record and then print it.
Please note for the DalCard Office to issue your UPass, your work term record must be approved by Management Career Services, the approved work term details completed and your work term must be in the Halifax Regional Municipality. Please contact your assigned Career and Recruitment Specialist if your submitted work term record has yet to be approved.
Dalhousie students do not pay any student services fees while on co-op work terms, which means they do not have access to Dalplex or Sexton Memorial Gym until they return to classes on a full-time basis. Visit Dalplex directly to purchase a term membership or for rate information, call 902-494-3372.
This is a reminder that all students who are participating in Co-op for the fall term are NOT automatically billed for the DSU Health and Dental Plan or the DSU International Health Plan (International Students).
Students going on a Co-op in the fall term and who wish to have coverage from September 1, 2019-August 31, 2020 must opt into the DSU Health and Dental Plan online. The opt-in period ends September 18, 2019.
If your co-op takes place outside the province of Nova Scotia, visit or contact the DSU Health Plan Office to inquire about travel coverage. This is particularly important for international students as travel coverage may be limited.
