How to appeal a parking fine or sanction?

The person receiving the citation from the Parking & Transportation Department or the University Police Department may choose to appeal it in person to the Parking Appeals Committee at the Parking & Transportation Department or fill an appeals form on our new customer portal located on our home page (under online forms). The Parking Appeals Committee is responsible for reviewing parking citation appeals and rendering a decision to uphold, or dismiss. The committee is composed of 5 students, 2 faculty members, and 2 staff employee's. The Parking & Transportation Department does not vote on appeals. Appeals are done in writing, in person (video taped) and Administratively (final step).

For audit purposes, we encourage appeals to be submitted no later than ten (10) days from the date of the citation. If the fine is not paid or the appeal is not presented within this time frame, the citations will be considered delinquent, and late fees will be assessed. A "hold" will be placed on the violator's records after the next day. This means that failure to pay parking holds will result in a person's not being permitted to register for classes or receive a transcript until the fine is paid. Outstanding citations that are appealed remains valid until after a verdict is rendered. Any outstanding fine will prevent faculty and staff from purchasing or obtaining a new parking permit.  Statements such as "I did not know the parking rule and regulation" will not be considered a valid appeal.  All customers (visitor, reserved, staff and students) are responsible for knowing and following parking rules and regulations. 

Decisions from the Parking Appeals Committee will be mailed.
