Parking Violations

I received a parking ticket that I shouldn’t have. What can I do?

Parking Ticket Appeal Process:

  • If someone receives a parking ticket and feels that it was improperly given, our department provides the opportunity for an appeal to be filed. The appeal forms are available at the Campus Police Department located in the Student Success Center. Appeals will only be accepted if completed within (5) business days from the date the ticket was written. After the appeal has been submitted, appeals will then be reviewed by the Parking Authority Review Board who then passes a decision based on majority vote.

Results of Appeal:

  • A copy of the appeal will be mailed back to the recipient’s address given declaring as to whether or not the ticket was VOIDED or DENIED.
  • If the ticket is voided - A copy of the appeal will state that the appeal has been accepted and that the issued ticket has been voided. No further action is needed by the recipient.
  • If the ticket is denied - A copy of the appeal will state that the appeal was denied and that the issued ticket will still need to be paid. The fine must be paid within ten (10) business days from the review date.

Nonpayment of Denied Appeal:

  • Students who do not pay their fine within ten (10) business days of the board’s decision, will be restricted from their BC3 student account. Meaning that the student will neither be able to register for future classes nor obtain transcripts from the college until the unpaid ticket has been paid in full.
  • If a student account is unfounded, the recipient will be prosecuted through the District Justice Office, 50-1-01, and violators shall be responsible for all additional costs of prosecution.
