Appeal a Citation
Individuals may be cited for traffic and parking violations committed while on campus including parking without a valid permit, parking in an unauthorized area, blocking a roadway, etc.
Students with unpaid fines will have a hold placed on their records, which prevents registering for classes and obtaining college transcripts or financial aid.
Beginning June 1, 2012, the Washington Administrative Code (WAC) for parking, citations, and the appeal process at Shoreline Community College will be enforced without exception.
Under WAC 132G-116-285, all appeals must be made within five (5) working days of date of citation. After five (5) working days from the date of the citation, violator waives all right to appeal. For example, a citation received on a Tuesday may be appealed up until 4 p.m. the following Tuesday by submitting the appeal to the Safety & Security Office.
The appeal process is not meant for repeated mistakes or excuses for violations. Parking without a permit, parking in life safety or signed areas, visitor lot parking or providing false information or testimony will stand as a violation.
Prior appeals for the same/similar violation are considered and per the WAC, the supervisor is authorized to let stand, suspend or impose a lessor fine. Unpaid citations are sent to an outside collections agency.
The appeal process
The Citation Appeal Form is available at the links below or at the Safety & Security Office (5000 building; room 5102).
