Appeal of Parking Citations

Parking citations may be appealed if issued improperly or if there are extraordinary circumstances. All citation appeals must be made within (7) days of the date the citation was issued. To appeal a parking citation, click here. Appeals must be submitted electronically. Access, Card, and Parking Services is unable to consider in person appeals.

If an appeal is granted, the customer will be notified and the violation will be waived.

If an appeal is denied, the customer will be notified. The customer will be responsible for all applicable charges and fines. Those fines and charges must be paid within (7) days of the appeal denial notice.

All decisions notices will be issued within (14) days of the appeal.

ADDITIONAL APPEAL CONSIDERATIONS

Citations may be appealed for consideration of improper issuance or extraordinary circumstances.
Citations issued for "No Valid Permit" may receive a reduction to the daily rate ($12) one-time per semester. Do not appeal if you qualify. Simply pay the $12.00 within 7 days of the citation date and the difference will be waived. Subsequent citations within the same term must be paid in full. Extraordinary circumstances may be considered by the Parking Appeal Committee.
Appeals are accepted via online form only. A valid email address is required for decision notification.
Appeals are initially reviewed by Access, Card, and Parking Services (ACaPS) for improper issuance. We may administratively resolve appeals as "granted" or "warning". The ACaPS office does not deny appeals.
Appeals submitted on the basis of extraordinary circumstances are added to a bi-weekly docket for Parking Citation Appeals Committee review. The commitee is a body of (5) students.
Appeals are processed through an online submission. Members and appeal customers remain anonymous. The ACaPS Office reserves the right to reduce the appeal committee to (3) representatives if member(s) are unavailable for a given docket. 

Please direct any questions to the ACaPS Office, 312.567.8968.
