Parking

2019 - 2020 Refund Policy

Policy Statement

A patron who purchases a prepaid parking permit and subsequently withdraws from classes or ceases employment at CSU for any reason is required to return their parking permit in order to request a refund from the Department of Parking & Transportation Services. A $10 administrative fee* will be deducted from all refund amounts. Returned permits are not eligible for repurchase. If a permit is needed at a later time, you may select from the remaining available permits.  

In order to control the use of CSU owned and operated parking spaces, only current students and employees are permitted to use CSU Prepaid permits to park on campus. Individuals found parking on campus who are not the registered owner of the permit, have withdrawn from courses, or are no longer employed by CSU will have the permit confiscated and the permit is non-refundable. These individuals may also be subject to fines and vehicle immobilization/towing.

No refund request will be granted unless the permit is returned to Parking Services within the refund period and all outstanding fines and fees are paid in full. Refund requests submitted for permits that are lost or stolen must be accompanied by a police report. The date the requested documentation is submitted will determine the refund amount. In accordance with University policy, all or part of a refund may be used to pay off a parking or university account balance.
