Appeals

Person using a computer to file an appeal.

Appeals are an opportunity for you to settle contested parking violations. They also help us evaluate the effectiveness of campus parking regulations and figure out ways to improve them.

You can file an appeal via our online application up to 10 calendar days after a citation was issued, otherwise you forfeit your right to appeal. You may need to wait up to 24 hours after receiving a ticket before filing an appeal to ensure the violation has been entered into our system.

Required Appeal Information 

Have the following information readily available when filing an appeal online or by phone:

  • Full name
  • Student ID or Employee PR number
  • University affiliation (i.e. student, faculty, staff, visitor, vendor, etc.)
  • Permanent address
  • Daytime phone number
  • Citation number
  • Vehicle registration and plate number
  • Permit number
  • Reason for appeal

In most cases, you should receive a decision by mail within 10 business days. 

Definitions of Appeal Actions

Approved means the appeal was granted and the fine was waived. 

Reduced means that there may have been mitigating circumstances which warrant a reduced fine, which is still required. 

Denied means that your citation has been upheld and that payment is due. 

If the appeals officer decides to uphold the citation, you may appeal to the Appeals Board, in writing, within 10 calendar days of the appeals officer's decision. 

The Appeals Board has the final say on the status of the citation.
