Parking Citations & Appeals
Any vehicle found on campus without a DSU parking permit or in violation of other rules and regulations will be cited, and a status check will be conducted to determine the purpose and intent of the driver/owner.
CAUTION: Three or more unpaid citations will result in a registration, graduation, and/or transcript hold. Excessive violations will result in vehicle immobilization and/or tow of the vehicle, and may result in revocation of parking privileges. Not all violations are listed here, and the absence of such is not grounds for a defense.
Paying a Fine
There are two easy ways to pay your fine:
- Pay online (citation number and fine amount required)
- In person at the Cashier’s Office, Holland Centennial Commons - 1st floor. (citation ticket and/or Dixie ID number required, cash or check only)
File an Appeal
If you think you have received a parking citation in error, you are welcome to appeal it. Appeals are online only and must be submitted within 15 days of citation issuance. If your appeal is received more than 15 days after the citation is issued, you forfeit your right to appeal. Appeals are reviewed by a third party committee made up of students, faculty, and staff, can take up to *two weeks, and their decisions are final.
*CAUTION: If the appeal is denied and the fine was not paid within 5 business days the citation was issued, the fine owed will be the FULL amount listed on the citation.
What happens if I get a citation and don't pay it?
Each citation is entered into a computer database that tracks them. If a citation is not cleared by an appeal filed within 15 days or by payment within 30 days of issue, a $20 late fee will be charged. If the citation is not cleared within 14 days of the end of a semester it goes to a delinquent fines list. Any further registration attempts by the student will be blocked, and transcripts will be held in suspension until all fines are paid in full. In the case that the owner/driver of a vehicle is not a student, the citation may reissue as a St. George PD citation and go to a collection agency.
