Unresolved fines will result in a financial hold being placed on the transcripts of the student permit holder.

5.2 Parking Education

A student may attend more than one parking class but may only have one of the first two citations fines waived for attendance. After the second citation the student may not receive a fine waiver even if the class is attended.

Some citations may automatically result in a referral to Student Honor office; for employees it will be the Human Resources, or Academic VP depending on status; (i.e. “Stolen/Forged/Altered Permit”, “Ticket Scam”, or other severe violations as determined by Parking Services or the Appeals Committees).

Citation records are accumulative and maintained for three (3) years from date of citation.

Parking Education Class for students is held every Thursday evening at 7:00 pm in Kimball 245

throughout each semester. It consists of peer instruction to teach the purpose of parking regulations.

a. Identification of the owner of a vehicle

b. For confiscation of an unauthorized or stolen permit

b. Parking employees have issued a parking citation for the appropriate offense.

c. The tow charge will be billed to the student or employee’s personal university I-account. The university will pay the tow company with money charged to the vehicle owner’s account.

5.4.2 Unidentified Vehicles. Vehicles that cannot be clearly identified as property of students or employees of the university will be towed at the owner’s expense.

The owner of the vehicle will need to contact the tow company to make arrangements for tow and storage costs.


5.5 Ticket Scam

Any tampering with citations by moving them, changing the material written on them, or altering them in any way constitutes a ticket scam. Citations may not be moved from one vehicle to another or used in any way to avoid further citations.
