You must park in the designated motorcycle parking areas. They are located west of building 1700 and near the stairway north of the 3000 building (gym).

Frequently Asked Questions
I RECEIVED A PARKING TICKET, WHAT OPTIONS DO I HAVE?
You have two options: you can pay the ticket at the Cashier's office in the 5000 building, or you can appeal the ticket in the security office, room 5102. If you choose to appeal the ticket, you must do it within five working days of receiving the ticket. You need to bring in your yellow copy of the ticket and fill out the form completely. Anyone who receives a ticket has the right to appeal. No changes will be considered on any ticket without an appeal form. The person filing the appeal will be responsible for the amount of the citation unless the citation is suspended or dismissed. It is the responsibility of the person filing the appeal to check back with our office (in person or by phone) for the results. We do not contact you. Filing an appeal does not guarantee the ticket will be reduced or suspended.
MY FRIEND AND I HAVE CLASSES IN THE SAME BUILDING AT THE SAME TIME. CAN I PARK BEHIND HER? WE ARE NOT BLOCKING ANYONE.
No, you cannot park behind another car, even if you know the other person nor have class at the same time. Other people will see this and assume they can do the same because they don't know your specific situation. Before long, people will be blocking in people they don't know. This same rule applies to staff/faculty. The only area where people have been given permission to park like this is the staff area directly in front of the music building.
I LEFT A NOTE ON MY DASH (OR $1.00 ON MY DASH) FOR THE OFFICER. WHY DID I GET A TICKET?
A note or a dollar bill left on your dash does not replace a valid permit. Valid permits are required on all vehicles on campus at all times. Vehicles without permits will be cited. If you have a special circumstance, you must come to the security office to discuss it with an officer. Exceptions may be made on a case-by case basis. Security personnel cannot accept money.
WHERE DO I BUY THE PERMITS?
Quarterly permits are purchased at the Cashier's Office in the 5000 building or in the Bookstore in the 9000 building.
WHAT DO I DO WITH THE PERMIT AFTER I PURCHASE ONE?
Quarterly permits are to hang from the rear view mirror of your car facing out, so the number can be seen. Please read the instruction sheet that accompanies your permit.
I LOST MY PERMIT. WHAT CAN I DO?
You must either purchase another quarterly permit or park for free in the Sears' lot and shuttle up to the main campus
MY PERMIT WAS STOLEN. WHAT CAN I DO?
If your permit was stolen, you must file a report with the security department. If your stolen pass is found on any vehicle on campus, that vehicle will be wheel-locked and issued a citation for illegal use of a stolen permit. To obtain another permit, you must go to the office of the Vice President for Student Services in the FOSS building.
I AM AN ONLINE STUDENT. CAN I PARK IN THE VISITOR'S LOT?
If you are ONLY online and do not have any classes on campus, you can park in the Visitor's Lot for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, you can receive a citation unless you go inside the 1000 building and obtain a daily parking permit. You will need to explain that you are an "online only student." The free permit is offered only 1 time to online students in the event you have a counseling appointment or something that takes you more than 30 minutes. The other option for parking as long as you need to is to park at the Sear's parking lot and use the SCC shuttle bus to come up to campus. You do not need a permit to park at Sear's and the shuttle bus service is free.
CAN I PARK IN STAFF LOTS?
Students can park in the staff lots with a valid permit AFTER 4pm. Not before.
HAVE A MOTORCYCLE. WHERE DO I PARK? DO I NEED A PERMIT?
You must park in the designated motorcycle parking areas. They are located west of building 1700 and near the stairway north of the 3000 building (gym). There is also a small motorcycle area near the entrance of the visitor lot. You do not need a permit, but if you are parked in a space other than a motorcycle area, you will be cited.
