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 decal. If more than one vehicle is driven on campus regularly, each vehicle should have its own decal. Parking permits 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 the payment and registration process is complete. All student parking permits expire at the end of Summer term each year.

Parking permits must be displayed so the permit number can be clearly seen. By display- ing the decal, 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 automobile regardless of who is driving.
