Getting a Parking Permit
Ordering a permit online is fast and convenient; buying one from the Bursar Office, however, is not. The Bursar Office, well-known for making students wait in long lines and for being unhelpful, stays true to its reputation when it comes to parking issues. At the beginning of each semester, when the office is busiest, obtaining a permit or paying a fine can really be a long and tiresome journey. It is, thus, recommended that students purchase online permits early-delivery takes about a week-to avoid tickets and never have to visit the Bursar Office.
Did You Know?
If you get a ticket and don't pay it within one week, $10 will be added to the ticket. Any month past due will cost you an additional $5. Meanwhile, the University will block all transcript withdrawals and registrations that you want to make.
