Why Student Pass?

Student Pass offers the convenience of auto-pay combined with online account management. You will receive your student monthly pass directly through the mail and your credit card automatically billed.

It's important to remember:

  • You must sign up by the 10th of the month to receive your monthly pass for the travel in the next month. (Enrollment must be completed on or before the 10th of the previous month to receive the pass for the next month.)
  • After you enroll for Quik-Tik, you will receive a new monthly pass in the mail each and every month unless you choose to suspend your account.
  • If you choose to suspend your monthly pass (winter or summer break), you will need to reactivate your account once again through our secure web page (http://secure.pacificcollege.edu) (this will verify enrollment). See below for details on how to reactivate. You will also need to reactive in May after all accounts are automatically suspended if you wish to receive passes for the summer months. Note that only students who maintain fulltime status will be able to get passes during the summer months at the discounted rate.
  • Students who participate in this program agree that the monthly pass is for their exclusive use only. Each student is eligible to receive one discounted monthly pass per month. Passes are non-transferable. Any abuse or purposeful deception will result in the cancellation of the student's monthly pass account, and (s)he will be unable to participate in the program in the future. This will also apply to any other student who is knowingly involved.
