• The registered vehicle owner is ultimately responsible for a parking citation (including lost, stolen or damaged citations) whether or not the owner was operating the vehicle at the time the citation was issued.

    Citations are delivered by placing them on a vehicle, by email (for registered vehicles), and/or by postal mail. Citations must be paid within 14 days of the issuance of the citation. Payments should be made online at parkingportal.kennesaw.edu. Fines not paid or appealed within 14 days will result in a HOLD placed on a student account, or a possible wage garnishment for KSU employees.

  • All appeals must be made through parkingportal.kennesaw.edu and received within 14 days of citation issuance.  Appeals made by email, phone, or in person will not be accepted.  If a citation is appealed within 14 days, any associated fines will be frozen until the appeal is adjudicated.  Fines will not transfer to Banner, nor will they come due during this period of review. Citations older than 14 days cannot be appealed.

    Appeal Approved: The associated citation will be voided and any associated fines will be reduced to $0.

    Appeal Denied: The associated citation stands, and the initial fine remains the responsibility of the registered vehicle owner.

  • Upon receipt of the third unpaid citation, vehicles are subject to being booted and/or towed at the owner’s expense. All outstanding KSU citations must be paid in order to remove a vehicle boot.  All outstanding citations must be paid online at parkingportal.kennesaw.edu before a vehicle may be released.  Boot removals are available during 8:00AM - 5:00PM, Monday-Friday.  Please contact KSU Parking & Transportation for a boot removal request.

    1. Vehicles parked in violation after receiving three previous citations.
    2. Legally parked but having $105 or more in outstanding citations.

      • Outstanding fines will need to be paid within 30 days to avoid a hold on the student’s account.

  • Towing may occur if a vehicle is illegally parked in a dedicated parking space, or impeding traffic and is considered a hazard by the Department of Public Safety. The tow fee does not cover towing costs or impoundment fees associated with the tow truck company. In the occurrence that your vehicle is towed, you may contact the towing company and pay the fine to have your vehicle released from the impound lot.
