New Citations

Effective March 21, 2016, Commuter Services will start using new white and yellow envelope stock to notify motorists of parking citations. The design is different from what has been used for the past 10 years, but both old and new versions are valid citations. If you have any questions about your citation, please see the Commuter Services Office on the first floor of the QLC Building.

If you have received a citation and believe it was issued in error, you may file an informal appeal. Online appeals must be filed within seven days of the citation issue date.

In your appeal, detail why you feel you should not have been cited. If there are applicable documents to support your appeal, make sure to include legible copies of them when filing the appeal. For a vehicle no longer owned or one that was purchased after the citation was issued, please fill out our Overdue Citation Notice Disclaimer and provide accompanying paperwork, including a copy of Notice of Transfer you filed with the Department of Motor Vehicles. The Parking Appeals Officer will determine the validity of the obligation based on information submitted to refute the charge.

The following types of reasons are NOT acceptable grounds for appeal:
  • Lack of knowledge of the regulations, e.g., new to campus or have not reviewed regulations
  • Loaned vehicle to a family member, friend, or associate and had no knowledge of parking violation
  • Other vehicles were also improperly parked
  • Late to class or appointment
  • Disagreement with or inability to pay the amount of the fines

NOTE: During the appeals process, the citation remains outstanding. Submitting an appeal does not necessarily mean that the citation will be cancelled. You should receive notice of the Appeals Officer’s decision within approximately three weeks of the presentation of your appeal.
