Is my ticket eligible for this program?
To be eligible for this, your ticket must:
- Be issued by safety and transportation.
- Have a value under $50.
It cannot be a citation due to illegal parking in a disabled space.
A student can only work off one ticket during the academic year. The community service hours can only be used for this program.
The program ends when $3,000 in parking citations, of each academic year, have been worked off.
