Please make sure to review the address listed to ensure your current address is displayed. (Students can update their mailing address at the Registrar's Office and Faculty/Staff can update their mailing address by contacting Human Resources.)
  3. The 5 drop-down boxes will ask you for your status (Commuter Student, Resident Student, or Faculty/Staff) as well as your vehicle information (vehicle make, body type, color, registration state, and license plate number).
  4. Once you have complete the request form, please click on the Submit button at the bottom of the page. You can submit a request at any time, but requests will only be reviewed and processed on weekdays during normal business hours.
  5. Once your request has been reviewed and processed, your parking decal(s) will be sent to you via the mail. If you are a Resident Student, your parking decal will be held in the Card Office. The Card Office will contact you when your parking decal is ready for pick up.
