Policy Provisions

Parking Provisions

All automobiles parked on campus by students, faculty, or staff must have a valid parking permit.  Student parking permits are good for the academic year only.  The Office of Residence Life (a unit of Student Development), upon completion of the registration process, provides student parking permits. Permits are good only for indicated areas.  Parking outside indicated areas is a violation and subject to fine.  Parking is permitted on marked paved or graveled areas only. Parking in front of dumpsters, in fire lanes, or on the grass is strictly prohibited. Vehicles parked in the fire lanes, other unauthorized places, and disabled or abandoned, or vehicles with repetitive violations may be subject to towing or impoundment at the owner’s expense.


Parking fines for violations are listed below:


· No visible parking permit [$100.00]

· Failure to obtain a parking permit [$100.00]

· Parked in Handicapped space or area [$100.00] and subject to tow

· Parked in fire lane or area [$50.00] and subject to tow

· Parking in an area that impedes an entrance to or exit from campus [$50.00] and subject to tow

· Vehicle impoundment [$50.00 in addition to standard violation fee]

· Parked in a No Parking space or area [$25.00]

· Parked in a Visitor parking space [$25.00]

· Parked with incorrect decal for area  [$25.00]

· Parked in an area not designated for parking [$25.00]

· Taking up more than one parking space [$25.00]


Further sanctions regarding parking violations may be applied by the Executive Director of Facilities and Safety.  Fines are payable to the Business Office.  Grade reports and transcripts will be held until all fines are paid in full. All towing fees are the responsibility of the owner of the vehicle.  The fine for unpaid citations doubles after 30 days from date of issue.
