Do Not Need My Permit Spring Semester
If you are no longer in need of a parking permit for spring semester please consider turning it back in to the Falcon Exchange so that it can be reissued to another student. Deadline for resubmission is December 20 in order to receive a financial credit for return of the permit.
On-line Parking Registration Process
In late spring an on-line parking registration process is held for all current students. Each student will be assigned a specific time slot based on number of credit hours previously earned plus the current semesters credit hours and class schedule. Registration is conducted via MCSquare and the Bosscars parking software. Please note your parking assignment is subject to change up until the time the permit is issued.
Parking spaces are set aside in each lot for student Residence Life staff. RAs should not participate in the on-line parking registration process. RAs will instead be asked to complete an RA Student Parking Registration Form and submit it directly to Residence Life. Every effort will be made to assign parking lots as close to the preferred buildings as possible, however priority is given based on total number of credits.
Students who have a medical condition that necessitates a special parking accommodation should not participate in online parking registration and should instead contact the Falcon Exchange regarding any special needs they have pertaining to parking on campus. All requests for campus Handicapped Placards should be referred to the Office of Disability Services in Murray Library.
