In an effort to maintain the balance in rising costs associated with campus growth and in accommodating the increased student demand for parking spaces, the new annual student parkng permit fee has been established at $470.00 beginning academic year 2013-2014. This fee increase also considers the study and information gathered by the University Parking Task Force on the actual costs incurred for parking by the University as well as with respect to the parking practices carried out by other higher education institutions.
Parking is non-refundable.
