Special Announcement: Parking Appeals Adjudicated by Students Only This Year

Beginning this Fall, parking citation appeals will be reviewed by a body of (5) students. Previously, appeal decisions were rendered by a group consisting of students, faculty, staff, and tenants. The ACaPS Office is pleased to transition these decisions to a 100% student perspective. Students will serve (1) semester terms at a time. Appeals are processed on a bi-weekly basis, through an online submission. Members and appeal customers will remain anonymous.

Contact us at to express interest in participating.
