First Year Students
2 Week Parking Permits
First year students may register a vehicle on campus for a maximum of two weeks per semester. These permits can be purchased in the Office of Student Accounts. Please make every reasonable effort to purchase your permit prior to bringing your vehicle on campus.
- Fee: $15.00 per week
- Vehicle registration cards must be presented when registering your vehicle on campus for the first time.
- You may only purchase a permit for a vehicle owned by you or a member of your immediate family. You may not purchase a permit for a vehicle owned by another student.
- Parking Citations: all outstanding citations must be paid before any parking permit will be issued.
- These permits are valid for the commuter areas of the Lot 7 parking garage only (levels one, two, and four).
First year students who can demonstrate a compelling need or would suffer undue hardship may petition for an exception to have their car on campus for the academic year or semester.
