Appeal Citation

Please note: The decision of the Traffic Judiciary is the FINAL step within the University Judiciary System. For complete information on the appeals process, see the GVSU Traffic and Parking Ordinance Chapter 3: Parking Fines, Appeals and Penalties.

Appeals will only be accepted within seven days of citation issuance. Faculty, staff and students of GVSU are required to use the online appeal process or the in-person appeal process. Guests and visitors of GVSU may submit a written appeal (available at either Parking Services location), online, or in-person. In-person appeals must take place at the campus where you received the citation.

When entering the appeal link below, if you are not a GVSU student or faculty/staff member, you will need to LOGIN AS GUEST. To do so, you will need your Driver's License number, citation number and you will be asked to create a password. We recommend using your birthday, as it is easy to remember and we cannot reset the password for you in the future. You will continue to use this information to log in for any future visits.

Please remember:
The appeals process is designed to provide a format to present a valid explanation regarding why the parking citation you received would not be considered lawful under the Traffic and Parking Ordinance set forth by GVSU. It is not a process to present a reason or an excuse.
