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.
Choose the fee payment option that best suits your situation. Standard Maker Passes cover usage related to courses, clubs, and personal projects, while Research Maker Passes cover usage related to research lab-sponsored work.
Please note: Use of most equipment requires in-person training; for the spring 2018 semester, in-person training modules will not be offered after Friday, April 6. Learn more about training modules.
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. You can also check your Maker Pass activation status online.
After getting your Maker Pass, you can start taking trainings for specific equipment in bCourses. Maker Pass access is valid from the first day of instruction to the last day of the semester.
