Appeals Process

To make an appeal, provide specific evidence showing the citation was not valid and/or issued in error. The following reasons are NOT grounds to appeal a citation:

  • Lack of knowledge of regulations, for example, new to campus or have not read regulations
  • Other vehicles were also parked improperly
  • Late to class or appointment
  • Disagreement with or inability to pay the amount of the fine(s)
  • Lack of space
  • Unread or misunderstood signs
  • Parking only for short period of time
  • Failure to display parking permit (valid license plate)
  • Parked in ADA parking area without valid DMV placard
  • Lost citation
  • Forgetfulness

The review committee may accept statements into consideration, however statements admitting the offense may not be considered as evidence needed to overturn the citation. Each citation has pictures attached that are taken at the time the citation is issued. These pictures are entered as evidence to support the officer’s actions while enforcing the regulations. Overtime violations contain GPS time stamps, as well as pictures of the vehicle as the officers supporting evidence.
