Ready to get your Maker Pass? Each semester that you want a Maker Pass, whether as a first-timer or returner, just follow the three-step process described on this page.
Please note, fall equipment trainings for Maker Pass holders will end on October 26 (CITRIS Invention Lab) and October 31st (Jacobs Hall). If this would be your first semester getting a Maker Pass, we recommend you complete registration and training in advance of this date or join Jacobs during our spring registration and trainings!
General registration is offered on a first come, first serve basis as capacity allows. Students taking classes held in Jacobs Hall may activate a Maker Pass at any time during the semester by proceeding directly to steps 2 and 3. Research users may also apply for a Maker Pass at any time during the semester for lab-sponsored work.
Select the payment option that fits your situation. Please verify you are eligible for a Maker Pass by completing the registration form in step 1 before proceeding, as refunds will not be issued.
Individuals who have passed the GWS training in a prior semester do not need to retake it, unless it is deemed necessary by Jacobs staff on an individual basis. Regardless, you must be currently enrolled in the training course; you can check for this by clicking the link provided above.
Once you have completed all three steps above, your Maker Pass will activate on your Cal 1 Card within 1-2 business days. Maker Pass access is valid from the first day of instruction to the last day of the semester.
Check your Maker Pass activation status. This link is only accessible over AirBears, from a campus computer or remotely using the campus VPN service. Activation status is updated once every 2 hours between 8am-10pm.
After getting your Maker Pass, you can start taking trainings for specific equipment in bCourses.
