Campus Permit Required

Obtaining a parking permit through the DPRC

Note: DPRC will no longer be handling permit sales nor distributing temporary permits for the Parking Department.

Students registered with the Disability Programs and Resource Center (DPRC) with a disability related need for parking, may purchase a permit or apply for a waiver of the parking fees. Proof of a DMV placard receipt or documentation from a qualified medical professional is required.
Permits are only provided to students currently enrolled through the regular University or the College of Extended Learning (CEL) or with a letter from a thesis advisor.

Waiver of Parking Fees

Applications to waive the parking fee based on financial need are available at DPRC.

Eligibility:  If you are a student with a verified disability and you meet the following criteria, you may be eligible for a parking permit fee waiver.

  • Register with Disability Programs and Resource Center.
  • Submit original proof to Disability Programs and Resource Center of a DMV placard receipt (Note: Actual placards do not display the holder’s name and so cannot be submitted as proof).
  • Provide Financial Aid Letter to demonstrate need

If you meet the above criteria, please complete packet and send it to our office for processing.

If you do not need a temporary permit while the semester permit is being mailed to you, we will forward your paperwork to the Parking Department.

If you need a temporary permit while semester permit is being mailed to you please notify our office so we can contact Parking Department to email you a temporary permit.

Parking Department will process Student’s parking permit request and the vendor will mail out the semester permit within 3 business days.

Please note: You will not be eligible for a waiver if you receive assistance for parking fees from the Department of Rehabilitation or any other agency.
