    Discounted rates are applied only for academic-year or full-year permit purchases and offered to those with a graduate assistant-ship, teaching assistantship , or research assistantship . Please make sure a permit is purchased online first to secure a space for both semesters, as space sells quickly! Please note that permits purchased will be at the full price rate! A complete copy of the assistantship contract, including the signed signature page, must then be provided to the Office of Parking and Transit Services. After review, discounts will be given to those who qualify for academic or full-year assistantship contracts. (Permits pre-purchased and charged to the Bursar account, or to be payroll deducted, can be easily adjusted if discount is to be applied. Permits pre-purchased by credit card payment will be adjusted after contacting the student for their credit card information, if discount is to be applied). If contracts are given by semester only, then both the fall and spring contracts would need to be provided to Parking and Transit Services in order to then receive an academic assistantship discount in the spring. If in addition, an assistantship contract for the full summer is also received, a discount will be applied to equal the full year discount after review of the full summer contract. Discounts will not be applied to those pending or expecting an assistantship. Permits purchased for Manley, Skytop, South Campus, or Evening Orange, do not qualify for the discount.
