    Fall/Spring 2020-21 Permit: Valid August 1, 2020 – May 31, 2021

    If you plan to attend classes in the fall and spring semesters, we recommend purchasing a Fall/Spring 2020-21 permit, which is valid between August 1, 2020, and May 31, 2021, to secure your preferred parking area for the fall and spring semesters. If you do not return to campus for the spring semester, you can return your permit online for a prorated refund. If you attend classes during the Summer 2021 semester, you will need to purchase a Summer 2021 permit when they are released in May.
     
    The cost of a 2020-21 parking permits are as follows:
    Residential Parking Permits - $108 (equals $54 per semester x 2 semesters)
     
    Commuter Parking Permits
    Central, East and West Areas – $108 (equals $54 per semester x 2 semesters)
    Economy Lots – $72 (equals $36 per semester x 2 semesters)
    Shuttle Lots – $30 (equals $15 per semester x 2 semesters)

    Fall, Spring and Summer Permits

    Fall 2020: Valid August 1 – December 31, 2020
    Spring 2021: Valid January 1 – May 31, 2021
    Summer 2021: Valid June 1 – July 31, 2021

    If you only plan to attend classes for a single semester, then we recommend that you select a single semester permit. Your Owl Express account will be charged the amount associated with the parking permit you select for one semester only. It’s important to note that your permit will not renew. If you return to campus for the next semester, you will need to pick a new permit from the parking areas available for that semester once the permits are released each semester.
