Appeal a Violation

The appeal should present substantial evidence that the parking violation was not committed, or the occurrence was due to circumstances beyond their control.

Once an individual has been issued five (5) or more violations in an academic year and/or has an outstanding balance over 60 days, they have become a nuisance parker. They will be notified that all violations must be paid within two weeks to avoid being towed from campus. After two weeks, they will be notified again they are now on the tow list and will remain until all outstanding violations and permit fees are paid. Only paying a portion of the outstanding parking fees/fines will not remove them from the tow list.
Vehicle can be towed each time it is parked on campus if there is still an outstanding balance of parking fees/fines. If they owner/driver of the vehicle shows up once the tow truck has arrived, they may be required to pay for all or a portion of the tow bill.
Individuals who stop payment on checks to pay parking fees or fines, or who write insufficient funds checks for parking fees or fines, will automatically be deemed a nuisance violator.
If individual continues to get tickets after paying balance and being removed from the tow list. They will be put back on the tow list and may be banned from parking on campus for six (6) months.
