Parking citations are contested through written appeals and must be submitted online or by filling out the form in person within 20 calendar days after the citation was issued. An additional $30 late penalty will be added if neither payment nor written appeal is received within the 20-day period. Other penalties may include vehicle impoundment at the owner’s expense, recalling or denying campus parking permits and applications, and action by a collection agency.
