Parking Citation Appeals

Parking Citation on Windshield
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 fifteen 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.
