Costs for parking permits

The final cost for a parking permit depends upon when the transaction has been fully completed.

Lowest cost [$150] is for:

  • Early request which is fully completed during the Discount Period
  • No change or edit after the Discount Period
  • Prompt pick-up of decal on the first day of the semester

Low cost [$160] is for:

  • Early request during the Discount Period, BUT
  • Any change/edit after the Discount Period

Average cost [$170] is for:

  • LATE request after the Discount Period with no need for any change/edit

Higher cost [$180] is for:

  • LATE request after the Discount Period, AND
  • Any change/edit on a LATE request

Highest cost [$190] is for:

  • VERY LATE request AFTER the first day of the semester

Why do we charge more for late requests, late pick-up, and changes? Requests or changes which are made closer to the start of the semeser, or worse--after school begins--make it difficult for Housing staff to be available for various important tasks at such a busy time of year.

In order to keep pace with expenses for managing permit administration, we try to keep costs down through efficiency. In 2005, we charged $140 for a semester permit, so the basic cost for a permit has risen little in the last decade. Early requests allow us to to prepare permits in advance, when the Housing Office has fewer demands. Late requests, any changes to requests, and late pick-up are more labor intensive.

Scooter and motorcyle permits

Motorcycle and scooter permits are 1/2 (one-half) the cost of a student's semester permit for a car or truck. The fractional cost will be determined using the table below.

Regular and Restricted (aka sophomore) permits

The charge for a semester permit is $150-$190, depending upon when the transaction has been fully completed.

Costs for Fall 2014:

A charge will be posted to the student account once the transaction has been completed. Students may obtain a Spring semester permit IN PERSON while they are picking up a Fall permit, but a Spring-ONLY permit cannot be requested online until December. If the student has not been previously waitlisted for a permit, the Spring semester decal will be affixed to the vehicle at that time. If the student has been waitlisted, a Spring permit will not be offered at time of Fall pick-up. This opportunity for an early Spring permit is only at the time of Fall permit pick-up.

Temporary permits

The charge for a temporary permit is $3/day, whether the permit is issued by Housing or the Campus Health Center. Students who bring a vehicle later in the semester may request a temporary permit in lieu of a full semester permit. This may result in a lower cost to the student. Charges will be added to the student account each month and/or near the end of the semester.

Cancellation policy

There is no cancellation or refund for temporary permits.

A semester permit can be cancelled only by email request. Refunds are given at the discretion of the Housing Office.

A full refund will be given for a cancellation prior to the start of the semester, and after the physical permit (i.e. decal) has been returned. After the semester has commenced, a partial refund for a cancelled semester permit will be determined using the equivalent cost for a temporary permit for the number of days in the semester in which the permit was active. As an example, if a student requests to cancel and returns the physical decal on the 10th day of the semsester, a credit will be placed on the student's account for the permit charge minus $30 (10 days x $3/day = $30).
