Decals on motorcycles are to be placed on the left front shock absorber casing.

For any other violation, the Director of Safety & Security will determine the fine in consultation with the Dean for Student Development.
Violations will be assessed as follows:
When a person receives a parking violation, they will be given seven days to pay the ticket through the Office of Safety & Security. After seven days, with no payment, the Director of Safety & Security or designee will notify the individual in writing that his or her fine is being sent to the University Business Office to be placed on their account.
Additional Violations will be handle as described in policy one, unless the person has not paid his/her previous violation fine(s). In that case, the new parking violation fine will be directly sent to the University Business Office and be added to the student's account.
After three violations, which have not been paid, the Director of Safety & Security or his/her designee will notify the individual that he/she will have seven days (from the date of the letter) to settle his/her account with the Business Office or his/her vehicle will be booted.
All visitors must receive a temporary parking permit from the Office of Safety & Security.
Continued non-compliance with University parking regulations may result in suspension of campus parking privileges. Parking permits must be renewed every year through the Office of Safety & Security.
All students, faculty, staff, and administrators will be issued only one permit. The cost of additional permits is $150 per permit.
Requests for reconsideration of the ticket/fine may be made to the Director of Safety & Security. A complete list of all regulations is available at the Office of Safety & Security located in the annex of Swint Hall.
Recommendations, comments and/or questions concerning the traffic/parking situation on the campus may be directed to the Director of Safety & Security.
