The Department of Public Safety Traffic Control Office will issue parking permits for a fee of $150.00 to authorized individuals. Parking permits will be issued in the Campus Recreation Center during the first week of school.
A parking permit will be obtained upon completion of a web-based parking permit application. Eligible undergraduate students will be limited to one active permit. Parking permits must be renewed on a yearly basis.
Resident freshmen students are not authorized to have or operate vehicles on campus at anytime. All first year resident students are considered freshmen regardless of academic standing.
Persons applying for a parking permit must have a valid driver's license. The vehicle for which a permit application is submitted must have a valid registration, liability insurance, and a current safety inspection sticker, as required by the state in which the vehicle is registered. A university official may request verification/inspection of these documents at any time. A valid photo ID and vehicle registration must be provided in order to pick up a permit. Permits are unique to each vehicle and are therefore non-transferable.
