Parking and Traffic Regulations
All faculty, staff, or students (full or part time) having a motor vehicle or the use of one on campus must register it with the Campus Business Office. Students attending continuing education classes must see the instructor to obtain a special parking pass. Vehicles can be registered by submitting a Vehicle Registration Card to the campus business office. The Vehicle Registration Card may be obtained in the Campus Business Office. The Campus Business Office will issue two types of parking hangtags: (1) Faculty/Staff and (2) Student. The fee for a student hangtag is $10.00 and is payable at the time the student registers. Hangtags are to be hung from the inside rearview mirror. It is the student’s responsibility to keep the hangtag available for use in the vehicle he/she parks on campus. The hangtag is designed to be moved from vehicle to vehicle. If a student loses his/her hangtag or if it is stolen, a replacement hangtag must be purchased. The replacement fee for students and faculty/staff is $10.00. Parking permits will be valid for the academic year beginning with the fall semester. An academic year consists of fall, spring, and summer semesters. Parking permit fees will not be prorated during the academic year. A student to whom the hangtag has been issued will be held responsible for any violation in which the vehicle is involved. In the event of mechanical failure of a vehicle, the owner/driver will be responsible for its removal as soon as available services will permit. The Director of Student Services should be advised of its location. In an effort to maintain a safe and orderly campus, the College requires all drivers to park only in designated parking areas. Drivers not adhering to parking regulations will be ticketed. Citations will be issued for the following offenses:
- No hangtag;
- Parking in spaces reserved for the disabled;
- Parking in staff parking space;
- Parking in loading zone;
- Parking in fire lane;
- Blocking fire hydrant;
- Parking in a no-parking area (sidewalks, streets, campus lawn);
- Parking over the line (taking more than one parking space);
- Blocking through traffic;
- Driving the wrong way on a one-way street;
- Reckless endangerment.
Parking citations carry a $15.00 fine per violation payable at the Business Office. Fines not paid within seven (7) calendar days will double. There is a $25.00 fine for parking in disabled parking places without a permit. Repeated violation of these regulations may result in the vehicle being immobilized with an auto boot. In case of vehicle immobilization, do not attempt to move the vehicle and immediately contact the Director of Student Services office. Additionally, violations such as parking in disabled parking space, parking in a loading zone, parking in fire lane, blocking a fire hydrant, and parking in a no-parking area may result in the vehicle being towed at the owner’s expense. If a student finds that his/her vehicle has been towed he/she should immediately contact the Director of Student Services office for further information. The Director of Student Services reserves the right to cancel the registration of any vehicle on campus. Citations not cleared at the Campus Business Office will be posted to the student’s account, which must be cleared before he/she will be allowed to register for future classes.
