Semester Conversion and other FAQ
What is the price of a semester permit?
Semester parking permits are $231
Why does a semester permit cost more than a quarterly permit?
Now that the academic year is split into two semesters instead of three quarters, the price of the parking permit needed to be modified. The calculation that was used is shown below.
Quarterly permits: $154 each
Semester permits: $231 each
Old Academic year (three quarters): $154 x 3= $462
New Academic year (two semesters): $231 x 2 = 462
Did the price of parking increase due to semester conversion?
No, the permit price remained the same. Instead of buying three permits every year students will buy two permits. The calculation above shows that the overall price for the academic year remains unchanged.
Do you offer a monthly payment plan for parking permits?
At the present time we do not offer a monthly payment plan. However, if you no longer need your parking permit you may turn it in to the parking office in bldg. 109 and be refunded in accordance with the fee schedule found here.
When are parking permits required?
Parking permit required at all times, including weekends and holidays.
Why do I have to pay for parking?
Under State law, all parking on university campuses is subject to the payment of a fee. The parking program is fully self-supporting; there are no tax payer funds used to fund the parking program. Your purchase of a parking permit enables the University to build and maintain the lots, provide frequent patrols to parked vehicles, and purchase supplies and equipment necessary to operate the program.
What can I do about a Parking Citation?
You may pay or contest any parking citation online within 21 days from the issuance date.
What do I do if I lock my keys in my car or if my car won't start?
All vehicles with a valid parking permit are eligible to receive motorist assistance. This assistance includes free battery jumps and free vehicle unlocks. Dial (909) 869-3061 and a parking officer will be dispatched as soon as possible.
