Parking - Frequently Asked Questions

This section is intended to address common myths and questions about parking on the Spokane Community College campus.
  

Q:
Do students have the first two weeks of the quarter to buy their parking permits?
A:
No, enforcement of the parking rules and regulations will begin the first day of fall quarter and will continue until the start of the following fall quarter. (WAC 132Q-20-240)
Q:
What should I do if my permit is not in the vehicle I parked on campus?
A:
If you have a permit but do not have it with you, the Office of Campus Safety can provide you with a one-day temporary pass.
Q:
Can I park free of charge if I have a state-issued Disabled Placard?
A:
No, the driver must display his or her State Disabled Placard as well as a current CCS parking permit. Those displaying both permits can park in any parking area except Maintenance. Additionally, if parking in a metered slot, the meter must be paid.
Q:
Can I back into a parking space or park against the flow of traffic?
A:
No, all vehicles must follow all traffic markings. In spaces that are marked for diagonal parking, vehicles are to be parked at a forty-five-degree angle, facing inward. (WAC 132Q-20-140)
Q:
Can students ever park in faculty parking?
A:
Yes, students may use faculty parking on a first-come basis after 3:30 p.m. (WAC 132Q-20-150)
Q:
How far into the yellow can I park?
A:
Zero inches of your vehicle can be in the yellow. Yellow painted curbs indicate a loading zone or some other restriction. (WAC 132Q-20-170)
Q:
If I receive a parking citation and want to dispute the citation, what can I do?
A:
Individuals receiving citations may submit an appeal online. Directions for submitting online appeals are printed on the back of each citation. For further information please call or visit the Office of Campus Safety at (509) 533-8624, Building 1, Room 147.

NOTE: Appeals must be submitted within 14 calendar days of receiving a citation.
Q:
Can I park on campus streets for free?
A:
No, all streets accessing campus are considered campus property and thereby require a parking permit.
Q:
Instead of buying a parking permit for the entire quarter, can I purchase daily permits?
A:
Yes, one-day permits may be purchased for $3.00 at the Book Store located in the Lair, B#6; the cashiers office, located in B#50; the Office of Campus Safety, B#1, Rm#147; or at one of two parking kiosks located west of the tennis courts and in P11 between buildings 50 and 8.
Q:
What happens if I don't pay my citation?
A:
Failure to pay a citation will initially result in a “HOLD” being placed on your student account, which means that you will not be allowed access to transcripts, grades, registration, or other CCS academic processes. After approximately 30 days, unpaid citations are turned over to collections, which may have an adverse impact on your credit ratings.
Q:
Is it true that citations paid within 3 days of issue receive a 25% discount off of the violation fine?
A:
Yes, citations paid within 3 days of issue, including the date of issue, will receive a 25% discount from the fine indicated on the citation – that equates to a savings of $7.50 on a citation fine of $30.00. Additionally, the citation can still be appealed. If the appeal is successful, the appellant will be refunded any fine paid.

The best rule of thumb related to campus parking… Parking is by PERMIT or METER only. If you have questions, you can always call the Spokane Community College, Office of Campus Safety at 533-8624.
