(Aug. 16, 2010)--If you haven't ordered your UTSA parking permit, now is the time to place your order online -- last year's permits expire Friday, Aug. 20. Parking permits must be ordered online. The benefits are no waiting in long lines and the convenience of ordering the permit online.
>> Order your permit 24/7 by logging on to the ASAP information system.
Permits are mailed to the residence address that the purchaser lists on the online application. Because a vendor mails the permit directly to the purchaser, allow three to five working days to receive it.
UTSA permit buyers can print a dashboard permit beginning Aug. 15 (valid for seven days) at the completion of the online order. While the student, faculty member or staff member awaits the arrival of their hangtag permit by U.S. mail, the dashboard permit will allow them to park on campus without the worry of ticketing.
Business Auxiliary Services now offers Visa as a payment option. Students who have registered for fall classes can purchase permits by Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover credit card or e-check. Students also can add the permit fee to their Tuition and Fee bills.
Faculty and staff members have the option of payroll deduction on a pre-tax or post-tax basis. For payroll deduction, the FY 2011 permit cost is divided into monthly payroll deductions beginning in October 2010. Deductions for permit purchases will continue until the full price of the permit is paid or until the permit is returned.
As another choice, faculty and staff members can use the Main Campus South Parking Garage on an hourly basis and avoid waiting in line to pay by using a Fast Pass. Purchase a Fast Pass at Business Auxiliary Services in Multidisciplinary Studies Building Room 1.01.52 or the South Garage office for a minimum of $20, and add funds to the card in $10 increments as needed. Parking fees are deducted when you swipe the card to leave the garage.
UTSA Business Auxiliary Services manages parking, transportation, dining and catering, bookstore, vending, copier and UTSACard services with the goal of providing the highest level of quality, value, innovation and excellence for UTSA students, faculty, staff and visitors.
For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.
Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.
Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
All campuses will be closed for the Labor Day holiday.
