Check the mail
We start mailing out permits about one week before the start of the term. If you order closer to the start of the term, it usually takes a day or so to process and mail out the permit.
- Worried about getting your permit in time? Parking is free the first week of the term, so relax! As long as you ordered your permit by the start of the term, you should be fine.
Buying permits in person
After the start of the term, you can buy permits in person at Student Account Services. But be warned: lines can be long and term permits cost $5 more at the counter. You will not be eligible for a free permit if you order at the Student Account Services window. Have your license plate information on hand when you come in.
Other types of parking permits
- Save money with carpooling! Permits are $20/person. See more about ride sharing at PCC.
- Motorcycle parking: free - no permit required! See bicycles and motorcycles.
- Daily and hourly parking: permits sold at dispensers - see pricing information.
Returning a permit
You can return your permit during the first week of classes for a full refund, without having to give any reason. During the second week of classes, you can only get a refund if you have dropped all your classes. Return permits at Student Account Services.
Lost or stolen permits
Report the loss or theft of a parking permit to Student Account Services as soon as you know it's missing. After a report has been filed, a replacement permit will be issued according to the following schedule:
- First occurrence:
- No fee
- Additional occurrences:
- Full price
If you find a permit, turn it in immediately to Parking and Transportation Services. If you're caught displaying a permit that has been reported lost or stolen, you'll be fined $150.
