PART TIME faculty and staff will register in person in our office at the Rivers Street Parking Deck.  Please bring a copy of your contract with you at the time of registration.  We can only sell part time permits based on the amount of time stated in the contract.  Faculty members teaching 6 or less credit hours and staff members working 20 or less hours qualify for the part time parking rate.  

*Pro Tip: Is your first choice sold out? Join the waiting list, and register for a different type of permit in the meantime!*
