Parking Tickets/Appeals

Campus Security will enforce these regulations.

Violators of these regulations will be subject to disciplinary action.

1. All motor vehicles parked on campus by students, faculty or staff (full- and part-time, day or evening students) must be registered with campus security and the appropriate hang tag displayed from the rear view mirror. Motorcycle decals should be mounted on the front left fork. Failure to register your vehicle and properly display your College hang tag will result in the ticketing and/or towing of your vehicle (at owner’s expense). Find the parking pass application here.

2. Unregistered vehicles driven on a temporary basis must be registered upon arrival with security. Security will issue the appropriate permit and/or a temporary pass to park in the proper area. Students, faculty, and staff driving an unregistered vehicle may not park in the visitor’s spaces.

3. The campus speed limit is 15 mph. Speeding, reckless driving or other moving violations are grounds for disciplinary action.

4. Students, faculty, and staff will be ticketed, and/or towed (at owner’s expense) if they park in the following areas:

  • Fire and emergency lanes
  • Loading zones and service entrances
  • Visitor parking area
  • In roadways
  • In two or more parking places
  • On campus lawns
  • Disabled parking spaces (unless the vehicle is properly labeled with an SUNY Schenectady “Special” decal. A New York State Disabled Parking Permit must be accompanied by an SUNY Schenectady “Special” decal.)

5. Failure to obey verbal parking instructions from College security or administrators will result in the issuing of a parking violation. First violation: $10; second violation: $20; unauthorized disabled parking: $50.

6. Failure to pay parking fines will result in the student’s name being placed on the College obligation list, which will prevent the issuing of grades and transcripts to that student as well as prohibiting him/her from registering for additional classes.

7. Individuals who accumulate three or more unpaid parking violations will be advised, by certified letter, to pay those outstanding violations within ten (10) class days. Individuals whose parking violations remain unpaid after those ten days have elapsed will have their parking permit revoked; a vehicle with a revoked parking permit will be subject to towing (at owner’s expense) from the campus.

8. Tickets are issued to students in violation of parking regulations. Students who have questions regarding a ticket should contact Campus Security in Elston Hall, Room 341 (appeal forms are available at the main security desk or by clicking here to get a parking ticket appeal form. An appeal of a parking ticket must be forwarded in writing to the Office of the Office of Campus Safety within five (5) class days of when the ticket was issued; the appeal should enclose a copy of the ticket and the reasons the student believes the ticket is invalid. The student will receive a written response regarding the disposition of the appeal within five (5) class days of when the appeal was received.
