    Citation Appeals

    You have an opportunity to appeal parking and traffic citations issued on campus through the BAS Parking Division. The appeals process not only provides you with an objective review of your appeal, it also provides the BAS Parking Division an opportunity to evaluate University rules and regulations for parking and traffic.

    Expedite your appeal process with the convenience of using our online appeals form!

    Students, Faculty, and Staff are encouraged to file appeals online via ASAP.

    Non-Affiliates and Visitors can file online using our online Appeals Form.

    Time Limit - You must make your appeal within 14 calendar days of the date the citation was issued. After 14 days you lose your right to appeal. APPEALS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AFTER THE FOURTEEN (14) CALENDAR DAY DEADLINE.

    A BAS Parking Division Appeals Officer reviews your appeal and makes one of these decisions: Reduced, Warning, Denied, or voids the ticket if warranted. If you are not satisfied with the decision of the Appeals Officer you may post a "Payment Pending Final Appeal" in the amount of the citation and resubmit your appeal so that a final decision can be rendered by the Appeals Panel, which is comprised of members of the faculty, staff, and student body. Payment and submission of final appeal must be completed within 14 calendar days of the original appeal decision. The decision of the Appeal Panel is final.

    • Lack of knowledge of regulations
