General Information

Your license plate will be your permit. When registering for parking, ensure that the license plate number is accurate for the car that will be parked on campus.

Backing into parking spaces and pulling through spaces is not permitted and will result in a citation. Exception: Those who wish to back in and/or pull through parking spaces must purchase a front vanity plate — the cost is $15.

2022-23 permits are valid from Aug. 15, 2022 — Aug. 15, 2023.

Student Parking Registration

We currently have App105, State Farm and Greenwood permits available.  For more information please email parking@appstate.edu

Student parking registration access dates are based on the number of completed credit hours a student has obtained as determined by the Office of the Registrar.

Incoming students should submit all official transcripts in advance of their parking registration date if those transfer credits will change their class credit level.

GA and RA Parking Permits

GAs and RAs must register in person so that we can review documentation of your position — online registration is not available for GAs and RAs.

GA parking areas are limited, and many are not near the core campus. If you are a GA who wants to have access to centrally located parking, it is strongly recommended that you register for the lot of your choice with the graduate students on July 6, 2022.

Register in person at:

Please bring following information with you:

  • Graduate assistantship contract or official confirmation* from University Housing of your RA position
  • AppCard
  • Copy of Vehicle registration card
  • Vehicle make, model and year
  • License plate number

*RA names will be cross-checked against lists provided by University Housing. If you were hired as an RA after those lists were sent, we will need direct communication from Housing in order to sell you an RA permit.
