Automotive Regulations


The Office of Campus Care has jurisdiction over parking and traffic regulations, rules, and fines. Campus Safety and Student Life may assist in reporting, investigation, or enforcement of these rules. This may include: University fines and sanctions, and/or any civil or criminal penalties that may apply.

Tickets: Parking and traffic violations carry a minimum $25 fine. Repeat offenders may lose their parking privilege.

Traffic and vehicle related fines must be paid in the Campus Care Office. If a question arises concerning a violation you must submit a written challenge with payment for the fine to Campus Care within seven days. After that time the violation will stand as written. Unpaid fines will result in vehicle impound after seven days.

General Regulations:

  • Any legally licensed student is permitted to operate a motor vehicle on campus; however, improper use of vehicles may result in the loss of the privilege.
  • All students must register their vehicles at the beginning of the school year. Parking permits must be visible at all times in the driver’s side of the rear window. If the rear window is tinted, you may place it in the bottom driver’s side corner of the windshield. Parking permits are free. Due to the limited availability of parking spaces, only one vehicle per student is permitted on campus at a time.
  • If you will be using more than one car, you are required to register all cars. In order to register a motor vehicle, you must have your license plate number, make, color, and model of your vehicle.
