Student Permit Refunds
Type of Refund
Registration Fee Refund - To be eligible for a refund of the registration fee, you must return your permit to the Office of Parking Services during the first week of the semester, session, or term that the permit was purchased in. The registration fee is the base amount paid for a restricted or housing permit, or the full amount paid for a commuter or stadium permit. Registration fees paid for at the beginning of or during the fall semester are NOT eligible for a refund during the spring semester or summer semester.
Anyone who has signed a premium plan housing contract and also paid for their parking permit may report that information to the Office of Parking Services and request a refund during the first four (4) weeks of classes. After the first four (4) weeks of the semester, Parking Services will not guarantee a refund.
Restricted/Residence Hall Fee Refund - Restricted or residence hall fees are the amount paid in addition to the registration fee. These fees will be refunded based on the date you turn your permit in to the Office of Parking Services. The refund amount will be calculated using the number of weeks the permit was used.
Cash, Check, or Money Order - Permits purchased with cash, check, or money order will be issued a refund check. Refund checks will be issued within 30 days of request.
Visa, MasterCard, or Discover - Refunds of fees paid using a Visa or MasterCard will be made to the card that was originally used.
We will NOT issue a check or cash to refund payments made with a credit card. Credit card refunds will be credited back to the credit card used on the actual transaction.
Requesting a Refund
Refund requests must be made in person and the current parking permit that is being exchanged or refunded must be returned. To request a refund of your registration fee, bring your permit to the Office of Parking Services within the first week of the semester, session, or term that the permit was purchased in. If you are requesting a refund of the restricted fee, the amount of your refund will be based on the date that you turn in your permit to the Office of Parking Services.
