Tier 1 Violations: Carry a $14 fine if paid within 30 calendar days. Violations not paid within the 30 calendar day period will begin to incur additional penalties. Refer to your ticket for a fee schedule.
Tier 2 Violations: Carry a $30 fine if paid within 30 calendar days. Major violations not paid within the 30 calendar day period will begin to incur additional penalties. Refer to your ticket for a fee schedule.

Any vehicle accumulating five or more major or minor parking violations is a scofflaw. Parking Services will initiate immobilization ("boot") and/or towing of scofflaws discovered on campus.
The immobilizer ("boot") requires a $100 removal fee in addition to payment of all parking fines and penalties accrued to date for release of the offending vehicle. The person claiming the vehicle must show a registration card for the vehicle and a picture ID at the Parking Office. Cash only is accepted and a receipt is issued.
Vehicles immobilized more than 24 hours may be towed away and/or additional penalties will be assessed to the owner for illegal parking for each day the vehicle remains unclaimed in the amount of $20/day. If towed, towing procedures must be followed to retrieve a vehicle.
