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.
• Access the summer 2019 registration form – see key dates at right.
Eligibility: Active UC Berkeley affiliates (students, faculty, and staff) from across campus. You need a Cal 1 Card and CalNet ID before beginning the registration process. General registration is offered on a first come, first served basis as capacity allows. Students enrolled in a Jacobs-affiliated class 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.
• Complete the General Workshop Safety (GWS) training. 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. Check your Maker Pass activation status. After getting your Maker Pass, you can start taking trainings for specific equipment in bCourses. For assistance, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jacobs Institute and CITRIS Invention Lab staff reserve the right to revoke Maker Passes as they see fit due to violations of safety, building or university rules, policies, and procedures.
