Student Parking Permit Registration Information for July 2019 Online Permit Sale

When can students register for parking?

The dates of online student permit registration are determined by the number of credit hours a student has obtained at the time of online registration as determined by the Registrar's Office. The parking office can only sell permits based on the number of credit hours a student currently has on file with the Registrar's Office.  New students bringing in credit to Appalachian should ensure their latest official transcript is submitted to the Office of Transfer Services in advance of their parking registration date if those credits will change their class credit level.

How can I pay for my permit?

Please be aware that permit fees do not immediately charge to your student account. Specifically during online registration periods it can take several days to have the charge appear on your student account. This delay in appearing on your student account does not affect the status of your registration. As long as your permit is showing in your online parking portal, and you have a copy of receipt of transaction (emailed to you after online registration) you are registered for the permit. After the permit fees have been charged to your account, students can pay their permit fees online via their Appalnet account using the following procedure:

  • Log into Appalnet account. 
  • Go to Student tab.
  • Go to Billing and Payment Center by Touchnet.
  • Here you will see your current balance and will be able to follow prompts to make payments.
  • Click View Activity to see a charge by charge breakdown of your student account.

Students can also pay their parking fees in person at the student accounts counter located on the second floor of the John E. Thomas (JET) building on Rivers Street.
