UPASS distribution for 2017-18 is on right now until September 8th at the times below. The summer UPASS is valid until Thursday August 31st and the new one kicks in from Friday September 1st.
If you’re a new graduate student, make sure you submit a campus affiliation form because you’ll need to have done that before you collect your UPASS. You can fill one out online or with Anna Reale in DV3200.
The UPASS is not available for MMPA and DIFA students.
Our agenda for the year (which includes a calendar of our planned events and a short summary of some of our ongoing initiatives) can be found here.
Please fill out this survey to give us your feedback on this agenda, our planned calendar and UTMAGS in general. The survey is only a page long and shouldn’t take more than 5-10 mins to complete.
The more folks we hear back from, the better we’ll be able to understand how we can help the grad community best!
