Student Permits

Student permits (decals) are sold online in advance of semester openings, or over-the-counter at other times of year. Some categories are subject to availability, and resident permits do sell out. The permit selection form appears below during online sales periods, and will not be seen during other periods.

When the form is open, you may begin your application by selecting your preferred permit type below to read the corresponding information, agree to terms and conditions, and then proceed to to enter your order. Upon approval of your application, your permit will be delivered to you in the U.S. mail.

Whenever possible, students — not their parents — should apply for the permit so the permit user fully understands the regulations and terms of use.

If the form does not appear below, permit sales are conducted at the parking office only.

Wait list: When a permit category is sold out, clicking on the "Join Wait List" button will direct you to the wait list page. Eligible applicants will be selected from the wait list if/when space availability allows. If you are selected, we will notify you via campus email with instructions on how to claim the permit.
