Do not send cash payments in the mail. Only check, money order or certified cashier's check should be sent when paying by mail.

Payment Plans

Payment plans are established for owners/drivers with outstanding balances of more than $100 with vehicles that are not currently booted. Once a vehicle has been immobilized, "booted", full payment of all outstanding parking debts is required in the payment form of cash, money order, credit card (Visa/MasterCard/Discover) or cashier check only.

1/3 of the complete balance is due to start payment plan. Minimum installment payment cannot be less than $15.00. Maximum time limit for payment plan, not to exceed 3 months. Payments due no later than 3 business days after the due date. Student's account will remain on hold until account is paid in full.

Payment plans are limited to a time frame of 3 months on all balances. Outstanding balances of $100 or less do not qualify for a payment plan. If the scheduled payments are not paid on time and the account is more than thirty days past due, the payment plan is subject to being cancelled by the Parking Office.

The establishment of a payment plan only allows a temporary parking hold release for registration. Diplomas and transcripts will not be released until the owner's/driver's total outstanding parking debt has been paid in full.
