After 30 calendar days, an administrative fee of $10 will be added to the outstanding balance of any citation/ticket and will be submitted for financial collection.

Tips for parking violation appeals

Before appealing your citation, please consider the following:

  • When you became a student or accepted a position with the University, you agreed to abide by the rules and regulations of the University. The traffic and parking regulations are a part of these regulations.
  • Permit holders are guaranteed a place to park; they are not guaranteed a space nearest to their classes or place of work.
  • The fact that other vehicles are parked improperly does not constitute a valid justification.
  • If you use an emergency or other extenuating circumstance as a justification, you must attach documented proof to your appeal.
  • Not knowing the regulations is not a valid justification.
  • Your past parking record will be a factor in the Parking Appeal Committee’s decision.

Suggestions, recommendations, or concerns about the regulations should be directed to Parking Operations and Transportation Services at (509) 368-6999 or spokane.parking@wsu.edu.
