Applicants For Permits

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.

Beginning August 1 you can choose a PERMIT DIRECT permit to be shipped directly to your home. Print off your receipt and place on your dash until your permit arrives.  See the procedure below.
