Mount Marty College does not charge a fee for parking permits. All individuals who operate or maintain a motor vehicle on campus have the responsibility to register their vehicles, understand the parking regulations and abide by the regulations. All motorized vehicles driven by students must be registered in the Business Office within five school days after classes begin. The Business Office must be notified of vehicle changes during the school year. To register your vehicle with the Business Office, please provide license number, make, model and color of the vehicle. Upon registration you will receive a free parking decal. For security and safety reasons, the decal must be placed on the front windshield in the lower right hand corner of each registered vehicle. Temporary parking permits are available if you are driving a rental/loaner vehicle and can be acquired at the Business Office.
All parking lots are clearly marked. It is the driver's responsibility to register their vehicles, understand the parking regulations and abide by the regulations. Curbs and lots marked in yellow are for emergency vehicles and are 'no parking zones.' A motor vehicle may not be parked on sidewalks, crosswalks, grass, lawns, in front of driveways, in fire lanes, blocking fire exits, or so as to interfere with the use of a fire hydrant, in a handicapped space without proper permit, in a loading zone unless unloading, or as to create a hazard or interfere with the free and proper use of a roadway or parking area. Signage need not be displayed for a citation to be issued. All vehicles not in regulated parking areas risk being ticketed. Mount Marty College is not responsible for damaged vehicles or lost or stolen personal property.
All accidents must be reported to the Department of Facilities Services along with local law enforcement. Disabled vehicles must be reported promptly to the Department of Facilities Services. College vehicles will not be used to jump-start disabled vehicles; however, a portable jumper cable unit is available for use by the vehicle-owner or operator. Facilities Services will not assist in lock picking on vehicles that have had the keys locked inside. Locksmith fees are the responsibility of the vehicle owner or operator. If you are parked in a restricted area and your car is locked or unable to start, please contact security to avoid receiving a parking violation.
The Department of Facilities service is responsible for issuing parking citations. In addition to parking citations, the department will coordinate with local towing agencies if a vehicle needs to be towed. The owner or operator of the towed vehicle is responsible for the towing cost. If the owner or operator of a vehicle arrives before the towing company, the owner or operator is responsible for paying any service fee that apply.
Tickets are issued to the MMC register owner. Tickets are issued for the following violations:
- No Valid Parking Permit
- Visitor Parking Only
- Handicap Parking Only
- Reserved Parking
- Fire Lane
- No Parking Anytime (Driveway, Gym, etc.)
- Vehicles in No Parking Zone are Subject to Tow-Away
All tickets carry a fine which will be billed by the Business Office. Tickets are $25.00. Handicap parking is clearly marked, and the fines are double if violated. Fines are also doubled in fire lanes. Student citations must be paid within 5 days of the ticketed issue date, or it will be added to the student's account. Unpaid citations may eliminate the possibility of class registration or receiving a student transcript.
Citations may be appealed within two weeks of the ticket issue date. Student wishing to appeal a citation must contact the Office for Student Affairs and fill out a Violation Appeal form. The Appeals Committee consisting of a member of Student Affairs staff, Facilities staff and a representative of SGA will review the appeal. Not having a permit or not seeing a posted sign are not valid reasons for filing an appeal.
