    Obtaining a parking permit


    New students shall register their vehicle in within the first 10 business days of the semester for which they are enrolled. The hanging permit is transferable to all vehicles driven by you. If you are found in possession of a faculty/staff parking permit, you are subject to possible student code of conduct violations.

    Please refer to your current state vehicle registration form to complete the vehicle information online.  All current students will be sent a link by email to sign up for a time slot to pick up their updated parking stickers.


    All employees shall register their vehicle in within the first 10 business days of the semester.  University employees purchase parking permits via payroll deduction for full-time faculty on the 20 pay cycle and the charge is $7.80; part-time employees on the biweekly pay cycle is $3; for all other employees, the charge is $6. Paying this fee does not guarantee finding a parking spot when and where you want to park. The hanging permit is transferable to all vehicles driven by you.
