Vehicle Registration


GENERAL

All students who bring motor vehicles to the campus, and students, who live off campus but wish to park on campus, must register their cars, motorcycles, or bikes with campus safety and security. Students must register their vehicles by the close of business day, the final day of drop/add.


Unauthorized/unlicensed motor vehicles (mopeds, motorized scooters, dirt bikes, ATVs etc.) are not permitted to operate on college property, including college-owned streets, walkways and hiking trails. This restriction does not apply to authorized mobility assistance for individuals with special needs nor to college-owned golf carts and utility vehicles assisting with college operations.


Upon approval of the motorized vehicle registration form, a display decal is issued and should be placed on the left side of the rear bumper.


A vehicle registration card must be completed and signed prior to receipt of a display decal. Signing this card indicates that the vehicle owner/operator will follow all rules and regulations outlined in this information.

Registration decals are issued to a specific vehicle, and may not be transferred to any other vehicle. It is the responsibility of the decal holder to replace any missing or stolen decal.
A current vehicle registration decal properly displayed (left side, rear bumper) entitles students, faculty and staff to park in designated parking areas only. Parking in unauthorized areas subjects the violator to a $10.00 fine.
