Parking Permits

Parking permits are required at all times while school is in session. Students are required to purchase and display a new parking permit each semester (fall, spring, and summer). Daily parking permits are also available and may be purchased at all three campuses. 

Disabled placards will be honored in lieu of a parking permit; however, students who have a valid disabled placard, and are the registered owner of the placard or plate, must still register their vehicle with College Police.

Temporary parking arrangements can be made for students who sustain a temporary injury; these permits are available at the Student Accessibility Services (SAS) Office (760.795.6658).
