The parking waiver form is available at the Cashier's Office or here and should be hand delivered to them.

Payments and Issuing

Student parking fees are included on the student bill and must be paid for at the Cashiers Office. All students are required to pay for daily parking prior to completing the online permit registration request procedure. If the parking fee is waived and a student wishes to participate in the parking program, the fee must be re-instated at the Cashier's Office.

Any vehicle not properly displaying a permit by the beginning of the third week of classes is subject to being fined.

If there are any outstanding parking obligations or problems registering the permit/vehicle online, contact the NEIU Parking Office for assistance during normal business hours.

Refunds and Cancellations

Students not requiring on-campus parking must cancel/opt out of the parking program by submitting a waiver form to the Cashier's Office.

The parking waiver form is available at the Cashier's Office or here.

All refunds are given in accordance with University tuition deadline dates and percentages. The parking decal must be returned to the Parking Office at the time classes are completely withdrawn.

The permit of a student, who drops all their classes and receives a parking refund, will become invalid. Any use of it may result in an "illegal use of permit" violation and/or vehicle immobilization "boot".

Meter Parking

Meter parking is for short term parking only. Meters accept nickels, dimes, and quarters. Twenty-five cents for every 15 minutes with maximum parking limit of 30 minutes. Meter rates and time limits are posted on all parking meters.

Possession of a valid NEIU parking permit DOES NOT allow parking at a meter stall without payment.

Parking meter compliance is enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Any vehicle parked at an expired meter is in violation and will be ticketed.
