Appeal Process

All faculty, staff, students and visitors of the University who wish to appeal a violation must fill out an appeal form within 14 calendar days of the ticket issuance. Each ticket must be appealed separately.

Appeals that are not submitted within 14 calendar days of issue date are ineligible for consideration. An appeal will postpone and delay fines/fees until adjudication. Failure to appeal within the prescribed time limit shall be deemed a waiver of the right to do so.

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.

Once your appeal has been submitted, you will be sent an email response from within 14 calendar days. Please call (773) 442‑5331 or email if you do not receive a response to your appeal within 14 calendar days.

Appeals are reviewed by the SPS Citation Appeals Committee. When a decision is made, the appellant will be informed by email within 14 calendar days.

Possible Outcomes


If your appeal is approved, the parking fine will be waived and you will no longer be held accountable. If the ticket was paid in advance, a refund will be issued.


If your appeal is denied, this means that the SPS Citation Appeals Committee considers you responsible for the fine and expects you to pay the entire parking violation fine and any associated late fees within 30 calendar days of the decision date. Failure to pay within 30 calendar days will result in additional penalty fees. Official transcripts and other documents will not be released from Enrollment Services until such violation fees are paid.
