Ticket/Citation Appeals

If a student or a member of the university faculty or staff believes a citation for a parking or other violation is unwarranted, an appeal may be made to the University Parking and Traffic Appeals Committee.

The University Parking and Traffic Appeals Committee was formed to hear and take action on all such appeals. Appeals against any citation issued by the University Police may be filed within 7 calendar days of the date the citation was issued. Parking appeals must be filed online, by email, or mailed with a post mark date no later than the 7th day.

Failure to file a formal appeal to the University Parking and Traffic Appeals Committee within the prescribed 7 day time limit shall constitute a forfeiture of all appeal privileges.

The University Parking and Traffic Appeals Committee shall meet monthly. The Committee shall keep University Police informed as to its standing schedule so that the appellants may receive instructions on when and where to appear. Appellants have the right to present witnesses and/or affidavits in support of their appeal. The university reserves the same right.
