Eligibility and Classification for Decal Purchase

Should registrants and/or Parking Services disagree as to proper classification, Parking Services may issue a fourteen day (14) temporary pass in favor of the registrant, who shall immediately file an appeal with Parking Services. The registrant is solely responsible for a clear statement of the situation in the appeal and for completing a permanent registration immediately upon receiving a decision from the Parking Appeals Committee.
