* SCOF entitles students to discount on Regional PugetPass

  Regional PugetPass (loaded onto ORCA card)
 Reimbursement Process

 

Students enrolled at Shoreline Community College who have purchased an ORCA card and loaded a Regional PugetPass (RPP) onto it, are entitled to a reimbursement of up to $105 per quarter or up to $35 per month thanks to the Sustainable Commuter Option Fee (SCOF). 

 

Student Body President, Robin Aranas has prepared this document to simplify the process for current students who use the RPP.

 

1.      After purchasing an ORCA card, purchase and load a Regional PugetPass, (not E-purse or other types of passes) onto your ORCA card. The web site should state, “Purchase a Regional PugetPass valid on one or more Agencies’ services.”  Choose a Category of Fares which best fits your daily commute depending on your age, zone and type of transit. (Chart provided below).

 

2.      After purchasing/loading a Regional PugetPass, take the following documents to the Campus Cashier:

·        Receipt

·        Proof of Identification I.D.

·        Bank or Credit Card Statement (showing proof of purchase)

·        Claim of Bus Pass Subsidy” (Provided by the Campus Cashier)

 

3.      The “Claim of Bus Pass Subsidy” must be submitted within 15 calendar days of the end of the month for which the pass was purchased: for example, subsidy for a September pass must be claimed by October 15. A check will be mailed to the address on the student’s official college record. Allow 20 days from submittal of the form for mailing of payment. You will receive a mail within three weeks from SCC containing a check.

Simple Rules:

·        Eligibility of the reimbursement only applies to enrolled SCC students who paid all charges for the quarter including the SCOF fee.

·        Adults who purchased Youth or Senior Passes will not be reimbursed.

·        Subsidy will not exceed the cost of the pass. Only a Regional PugetPass will be reimbursed.

·        Students who purchased an SCC Parking Permit are eligible for the reimbursement.
