The type of permit that a student qualifies for is determined by student status and address. Falsification of information may lead to fines and denial of parking privileges.
Please note: We enforce parking regulations on campus much like any other city. The fines assessed for parking violations can be costly. For example, the fine for parking in a handicap space without the proper permit displayed is $250, as set by state law! Please be careful to park in the appropriate lot and follow the parking regulations.
