The Bear With Me Program allows students to pay parking citations by completing community service hours.
Bear With Me Program
How does it work?
- Go to GivePulse and find a community service opportunity in Springfield.
- Do at least two hours of community service from an organization.
- Log your hours by joining the “Bear With Me Program” organization on CampusLINK.
- Complete the Bear With Me Program form and submit it to CampusLINK.
Is my ticket eligible for this program?
To be eligible for this, your ticket must:
- Be issued by Campus Safety.
- 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, each semester, during the academic year. The community service hours can only be used for this program.
Previously the program ended when $3,000 in parking citations, of each academic year, were worked off, but due to the generosity of SGA the program has been extended for another $3,000 - which will now have the program ending at $6,000.
