Customers who return their parking permit to the Parking Office on or before March 31 will receive a prorated refund of the purchase cost. Information about refund procedures and amounts is provided below.
Refund of permit cost is provided subject to the following guidelines:
Students who graduate at semester or who don't need their permit for the
second semester may return the permit and receive a prorated refund.
Caution: Students cannot assign their permit to another user. A permit may only be used by the registered user. An unregistered user/vehicle using a parking permit is subject to fraudulent use penalties and confiscation of the permit.The amount of the refund is determined by the date it is received in the Parking Services Office.
Faculty/Staff may return their permit and have their payroll deduction ended.
The payroll deduction typically begins October and extends thru May . Note: Both University Staff and Faculty/Academic Staff deductions are taken once per month.
The parking permit payroll deduction is not an exact match for the term of use of the permit. Additional factors such as the fixed cost of selling a permit, and granting primary weight to the regular school session are factored into the refund schedule. Consequently, the prorated cost of the permit will not perfectly align with the prorated use of the permit. Following are our internal guidelines for processing payroll deduction refunds:
