Purchasing a Permit

Permits are no longer available for purchase online, and must be purchased in person. A student ID is required at the time of purchase for all over-the-counter parking permit sales. Permits are available for purchase throughout the year, however, prices are not prorated. The permit charge is billed directly to your student account based on your enrolled credit hours per semester. 

If you purchased a permit for Fall 2018 and wish to keep it for Winter 2019, you do not need to purchase a new permit. The semester cost is automatically billed to your student account.

**Part-time students with 6 or less credits are eligible for a commuter permit for $130.00 per semester.
