Students and employees are required to register vehicles
Employees and students are required to register vehicles online before parking in any OSU-Cascades parking lot. All parking is monitored and enforced using license plate recognition technology - no sticker or hangtag is required after registering.
Student - Register My Car
Employee - Register My Car
During registration commuters have the option to pre-fund your account. Pre-funding your account is equal to purchasing a permit, except that you only pay by hour/day that you are parked on campus ($.50/hour; Max. $2/day).Payment for parking is not required during registration; when you reach the "permit details" page click "submit" without selecting a payment amount.
On-campus residents do not need to pay to park in the long-term lot, unless they apply for and recieve an exemption to park on campus during fee hours.
To park on campus during fee hours, commuters must pay online in advance or pay at the pay station upon arrival.
Pre-fund your parking account online
After registering, if you are a commuter student or employee, please follow these steps to pre-fund your account. If you plan to drive each day of the term, you will likely need $85 to $100 per term. Each day you don't drive alone, you save the money and it will be available during the next academic term. Consider carpooling, riding the bus, or biking to campus - learn more about all Transportation Options

Step 4: Each day your vehicle is on campus, parking fees of $0.50 per hour (or maximum of $2/day) will be deducted from your account balance upon exiting the parking lot.
