Beginning Tuesday, September 2nd, parking permit rules will be enforced for the fall semester. All vehicles should be located in a properly designated area at that time in order to avoid being cited.

As in previous years, courtesy will be given for the first minor offense. However, rather than dismissing the first citation of the semester, illegally parked vehicles will be issued a warning citation for the first minor violation. Warning citations will still indicate the infraction type, but will not carry a monetary fine. Students, employees, and guests will no longer need to contact Parking and Transportation Services to receive their courtesy dismissals; with this change the courtesy is automatic in the form of a warning citation.

Please visit the Parking Fines portion of the Parking and Transportation Services website for additional information.
