Appeal a Citation

Appealing a Citation

Consistent enforcement of campus parking policies and regulations helps contribute to an equitable system for all members of the university community. Occasionally, extenuating circumstances may be the basis for an appeal of a parking citation. The following information is applicable if you choose to file an appeal of this type.

Citation appeals must be received within 15 days of the date of issuance; otherwise, the right to appeal is forfeited and the citation must be paid.

  • Absent extraordinary circumstances, an appeal submitted after 15 days from the citation issue date will not be reviewed, and the citation must be paid.
  • Disregarding CampusParc Parking Policies and Procedures is not a valid reason to waive a citation. You are encouraged to add as much relevant information and supporting documentation as possible to the appeal to assist in the review process.
  • Fire lane, fire hydrant, and disability zone parking violations and unauthorized uses of a permit are not waivable offenses.
  • If your first appeal was denied and you wish to provide additional documentation (e.g., accident reports, medical records, auto repair bills) for reconsideration, the citation must be paid in full prior to submission. Secondary appeals that simply restate the contents of the original appeal will not be considered. 

Students with citations not paid or appealed within 15 calendar days will have a hold placed on their account. Students who appeal citations during the 15-day period will not have a hold placed on their account while the citation is adjudicated. If you received an impound warning, all outstanding citations must be paid or you will remain in warning status and your vehicle may be booted and/or towed.

The only way to appeal a citation is online, by clicking the button below. You will need your citation number (on your citation) and your license plate number. Please note, you are limited in the length of your appeal statement, and you can submit up to two supporting documents/pictures. If you have a lengthy statement, you may wish to convert your statement to a PDF document. Documents cannot exceed 2MB.

Unpaid Citations

Vehicles with unpaid citations equal to or greater than one time the Unregistered Vehicle Parked Out of Zone fine not on appeal are subject to being towed or immobilized and will remain so until all citations are paid in full. 

Restricted From Purchasing a Parking Permit

Anyone with unpaid parking fines will not be permitted to register a vehicle or purchase a permit of any type until the fines have been paid.

Student Holds

Any student with an unpaid citation older than 15 days is placed on student-hold status. This prevents the student from registering for the following semester or from obtaining his/her transcripts, grades, and financial aid.

If a customer has an administrative hold for unpaid citations and is paying in person or online, one business day is required to remove the hold. If an administrative hold needs to be released immediately, a Customer Service Representative will contact the university during normal business hours.

Citations paid online after 6:00 p.m. will result in the hold being removed the following evening at 9:00 p.m. If the citation is paid online over the weekend, the hold will be removed at 9:00 p.m. Monday.

CampusParc is not responsible for payments lost or delayed in the mail.
