The Parking Appeals Committee will evaluate all properly submitted appeals to determine whether cause exists to set aside tickets. A written appeal must be received by the Parking Services office within 72 hours from the date of the ticket (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and holidays).  Except under extenuating circumstances, late appeals will not be accepted.

The committee consists of seven members appointed by the governance groups: two academic staff , two classified staff , two students and one faculty. The committee meets on a weekly basis throughout each fall and spring semester and at other times during the year, as needed.

Once an appeal is filed, no late fees are added to that ticket while the appeal is pending review by the committee, as long as the appeal is filed within the 72-hour time limit. Following the meeting, a letter is sent and/or emailed to each appellant to notify of the committee's decision. If the committee denies an appeal, a new due date for payment of the ticket is given.  A ticket is then to be paid by that due date in order to avoid additional late fees or other penalties.

Appeals are NOT granted for the following reasons:

  1. "Everyone else does it."

  2. "I was only there for ___ minutes."

  3. "I've been parking there for ___ days/weeks without receiving a ticket."

  4. "I did not know..."

  5. "I did not see the sign."

  6. "I cannot afford the fine."

  7. "Someone (nameless person) told me I could park there without a permit/receiving a ticket."

All other appeals may or may not be granted at the discretion of the Parking Appeals Committee.
