APPEALS

Submission

Appeals can be submitted one of three ways:

GENERAL INFORMATION

Online Appeals

The system will not accept appeals for violations that are 14 days past the date of issue. Graduation or separation from the University does not cancel parking obligations. The registered vehicle's owner and authorized drivers are responsible for all permits, fines and fees assessed against the vehicle.
 
You will be sent a written response letter from the Parking Office within 14 business days. Please contact the Parking Office at 773-442-4114 or email: parking-appeals@neiu.edu if you do not receive a response to your appeal within 14 days.

Possible Outcomes

  • Excused:
    If your citation is excused, the parking fine has been waived and you will no longer be held accountable. If the violation was paid in advanced, a refund will be issued.

  • Denied:
    If your Appeal has been denied, this means that the Parking Appeals Committee considers you responsible for the fine and expects you to pay the entire parking violation fine and any associated late fee within 14 days of the decision date.

  • Reduced:
    If your citation has been reduced, this means that the Parking Appeals Committee considers you responsible for the fine and expects you to pay the parking violation fine at a reduced rate within 14 days from the decision date.

Appeal Process

  • Each ticket must be appealed separately. An appeal can be submitted in writing or on-line as shown above. Appeals not submitted within 14 calendar days of issue date are ineligible for consideration. An appeal will postpone and delay fines/fees until adjudication.

Parking Violation

  • All faculty, staff, students and visitors of the University who wish to appeal a violation must fill out an appeal form within fourteen (14) days of the ticket issuance. Appeal forms are available at the Parking Office or online at www.neiu.edu/~park. Failure to appeal within the prescribed time limit shall be deemed a waiver of the right to do so.

  • Appeals are reviewed by the University Parking Office. When a decision is made, the appellant will be informed by postal mail within fourteen (14) days.

  • If an appeal has been denied, failure to pay within fourteen (14) day period will result in additional penalty fees. Transcripts and other documents will not be released from Enrollment Services until such violation fees are paid.

  • An individual has the option to re-appeal if their first appeal is denied and wish to provide additional information for a second consideration before the Parking Appeals Team. All requests must be sent to parking-appeals@neiu.edu within fourteen (14) days of the University Parking Office decision letter and will receive a response by email. Any fees associated with an account are still the responsibility of the person while their re-appeal is pending. Please be detailed and do not simply restate the contents of the original appeal or it will not be accepted.

  • Once a second appeal appointment has been scheduled, a person has three ways to plead their case:
    1)  In person.
    2)  By telephone.
    3)  In writing.

  • The outcome of the second appeal will be sent to the appellant via email. The decision of the Parking Appeals Team is final. Transcripts and other documents will not be released from Enrollment Services until such violation fees are paid.
