Parking Ticket Appeals

If you believe you should not have received a parking ticket due to extenuating circumstances, you have the right to an appeal.

  • Tickets must be appealed within 10 calendar days of the date it was issued.
  • Complete the online appeal form using the AIMS (Automated Information Management System) Form or print the appeal form and put the completed form in the drop box on the east side of the Campus Parking Services building.
  • A separate appeal form is required for each ticket unless they are for the same violation.
  • If your appeal is marked denied or special instructions and you still disagree with the decision, you may request a second appeal. 
  • The second appeal may be done in writing or via TEAMS.
  • Appointments for in-person or second written appeals must be made with Parking Services within 10 calendar days from the first appeal denial date.
  • Appointments for in-person appeals are limited each month.
  • If the in-person appeal appointment schedule is full or you are unable to attend an in-person appeal, a second written appeal may be submitted. 
  • Contact us at 815-753-1045 or email parking@niu.edu to schedule an in-person second appeal appointment within 10 calendar days from the first appeal denial date.
  • If you are unable to attend your in-person second appeal appointment, please contact Parking Services within 24 hours in advance.
  • Failure to appear for your scheduled appointment will result in an automatic denial.

All decisions of the Parking Appeals Committee are final.
