Appeal a Citation


Purpose: The Parking Appeals Committee at Illinois Institute of Technology is an impartial body of campus community members that review parking citation appeals and recommend decisions to Access, Card, and Parking Services (ACaPS).

Parking Appeals Adjudicated by Students Only!

Beginning Fall 2015, the ACaPS office transitioned citation appeal decisions to a 100% student perspective. Appeal dockets will be reviewed by a body of (5) students. Previously, appeal decisions were rendered by a group consisting of students, faculty, staff, and tenants. Members will serve a term of (1) academic year. Appeals are processed on a bi-weekly basis, through an online submission. Members and appeal customers will 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. 

Contact us at to express interest in participating.

Member Expectations

  • Members will be expected to serve on the committee for one (1) academic year.
  • Members will be expected to review citation appeals twice monthly for approximately an hour via an electronic survey.
  • This will be done at a scheduled time on a predetermined date.
  • Committee members will be kept confidential.
