Permits pre-purchased by credit card payment will be adjusted after contacting the student for their credit card information if the 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 Transportation Services in order to then receive an academic assistantship discount in the spring.

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.
