Parking and Driving Regulations

Any student who drives a car or other motorized vehicle on any campus, day or night, must have liability insurance and must secure and display a parking permit. If more than one vehicle is driven on campus regularly, each vehicle should have its own decal. Parking decals are $20.00 and can be purchased online through the college website. Vehicles must first be registered through the website before a parking permit can be issued. Payment can be made in the Business Office or on the website after registration. Permits will be mailed after payment and registration process is complete. All student parking permits expire at the end of summer term each year.

Parking hangtags must be displayed on the rearview mirror. By doing so, the student agrees to abide by the following parking regulations:

  1. The speed limit is not to exceed 10 mph on any campus.
  2. The registered driver is responsible for his/her automobile regardless of who is driving.
  3. Visitor’s Parking Permits are issued to non-student campus guests. Students experiencing car trouble or other extenuating circumstances that necessitate bringing an unregistered vehicle on campus may also qualify for a Visitor’s Parking Permit. A Visitor’s Parking Permit should be obtained immediately upon arriving on campus. Permits are available from Campus Police on the Wadley and Opelika campuses and from the Administrative Office on the Valley campus.
