Anyone wishing to appeal a ticket will have 10 calendar days to file the appeal, either online or in the office.
  • Also, a ticket that is reducible, by half price, will need to be paid by the date that is printed on the ticket (2 calendar days). If paid by mail, it must be postmarked within 2 calendar days. Visitors receiving a "No NIU Registration" ticket will have 10 calendar days to call in to have their ticket lowered to the "$5.00 Daily Visitor Fee". If paid by mail, it must be postmarked within the 10 calendar days. Tickets can also be paid, or appeals filed, using the Drop Box located on the East side of our building, or 24/7 online.
