1. Where do I get a parking permit?
Parking permits are available during registration at each campus. If you did not get a permit at the time of registration, you may pick up a permit at the Pioneer Student Center on the main campus, or at the Business Office at the Fort Bend Technical Center and the Sugar Land campuses. You must have a parking permit no later than the first week of classes.
Warnings will be given for violations of parking regulations only during the first week of classes.
2. What information do I need to get a permit?
A student’s name and social security number or ID number, as well as the year, make, model, color and license plate number of the vehicle are required to get a parking permit.
3. Where do I display the permit?
The parking permit must be displayed from the rearview mirror in accordance with college instructions. No exceptions.
4. What if I drive a different car than the one I registered?
The permit is designed so that it may be removed from one vehicle and attached to a different vehicle easily. The permit is issued to a WCJC student, not to a vehicle, so no matter which vehicle a student drives, the WCJC parking permit must be displayed from the rearview mirror.
5. Where may I park on campus?
Students may park only between the white lines at each campus. Parking and traffic regulations are set forth in detail in the Student Handbook.
6. Is there a fine for parking tickets?
Yes, each parking citation is $25.00. Fines should be paid at the Business Office on the campus where the citation was issued, or mailed to the address on the citation. Holds will be placed on the records of students with parking fines.
7. Can I appeal a parking citation?
Yes. Students may pick up a copy of College Regulation 325 and an appeal form from the Office of Student Services at the Wharton campus, or from the receptionist at the Fort Bend Tech Center or Sugar Land campus. Appeals are made through the Summary Appeals Court. The decision of the Summary Appeals Court is final. Note: Failure to display a parking permit will not constitute a reason for dismissal.
