UPass Opt-out Process:
If your approved work term is outside of the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM), you can opt out of the UPass.
The deadline to opt-out of the UPass for the Winter 2020 semester is January 17, 2020.
To opt out, you must do three steps:
- Complete a waiver online, available at: https://www.dal.ca/campus_life/UPass/opting-out.html
- Prove your work term is outside of HRM. How? See bottom of this email
- Return your UPass sticker to the DalCard Office, located at 6230 Coburg Road (Howe Hall).
Please note: for the DalCard Office to waive your U-Pass fee, your work term record must have been approved by Management Career Services, the approved work term details provided and your work term must be outside of HRM. 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 that they do not have access to the 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.
If your work term is located outside of the HRM and you are living in a Dalhousie Residence, you must contact the Residence Office at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide proof that you have an approved work term outside of HRM. How? See below
