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.

“It’s important to have transferable skills and to have a professional mentor. Working with [Assistant Professor] Alida Bouris has helped me both personally and professionally. She has encouraged me to mold my course schedule and placement to my interest and goals, to take risks, and she has helped me shape my vision of who I am in the social work world.”
