USSU VP Steven Heidel has circulated the final question that students will be asked near the end of the October regarding the implementation of a Summer U-Pass.
Here’s the email attachment:
The University of Saskatchewan Students’ Union seeks to expand the current U-Pass program to cover the months of May through August. Subject to student approval of the referendum question below undergraduate students registered in 3 credit units in Spring Sessions, Quarter 1 and/or 2 will receive a U-Pass for May and June for a few of $36.75 in 2013. The fee will be subject to a yearly consumer price index increase. Undergraduate students registered in 3 credit units in Summer Session, Quarter 3 and/or 4 (July and/or August) will receive a U-Pass for July and August for a fee of $36.75 in 2013 and similarly subject to a yearly consumer price index increase. Only students registered in classes will be eligible for a U-Pass. The referendum question is:
Do you support the implementation of a Spring and/or Summer U-Pass (universal bus pass) for undergraduate students enrolled in May and/or June (Spring Session, Quarter 1 and 2 or the entire spring term) for $36.75 with a yearly consumer price index adjustment for those students enrolled in May and/or June and for July and/or August (Summer Session, Quarter 3 and 4 or the entire summer term) for a fee of $36.75 with a yearly consumer price index adjustment for those students enrolled in July and/or August.
Students in one or more of the following categories will be eligible for exemption: those living outside the city limits, those enrolled exclusively in distance education courses, those living on-campus housing (Ogle Hall, Voyageur Place Residence, Lutheran Theological Seminary and St. Andrew’s), or those unable to ride the bus due to a disability.
