5.20.1 Parking Procedure

Responsible Position

Director of Facilities and Security



Vehicles must properly display a parking permit on the vehicle while parked on property under the control of the college. Failure to display a parking permit will result in a fine and/or removal of the vehicle at the expense of the owner. Vehicles must be parked within the striped boundaries of the parking space. The fact that other vehicles are parked improperly does not excuse parking over any line.

The purchase of a parking permit does not guarantee availability of a parking space. All persons operating motor vehicles on college property do so at their own risk. No responsibility or liability is assumed by the college for loss of property, damage to vehicle while parked, damage which may be incurred through the process of impounding the vehicle, or any other damage or loss of any kind sustained while on college property.

Permits lost or stolen can be replaced for a fee. Anyone caught with an illegal ATCC parking permit could:

  • lose all parking privileges
  • pay a fine
  • be turned over to authorities for prosecution

The speed limit in the parking lots is 10 mph. If violated, parking privileges could be revoked. Parking is prohibited in areas specifically designated as visitor parking, delivery areas, service areas, "No Parking Zones," fire lanes or zones, driveways, lawns, sidewalks, fence compounds, and other posted areas. Time limit parking zones may be used by anyone for the designated time.

Permit Fees and Related Fines

Student parking fees for credit courses are applied per credit up to a maximum of 15 credits per semester. A parking fee is not charged for online, clinical, and internship credits when the student is not on campus in order to complete.

The cost for administrators, faculty, and staff is prorated depending upon the level of assignment.


Parking fees may be waived by completing the Parking Use Fee Exemption Request form from the Business Office. Students who have already obtained a permit must return their permit along with the waiver form.


Refunds for parking permits will be made if a student withdraws from the college according to policy 5.12 Refunds, Waivers, and Withdrawals. The parking permit must be turned in with the withdrawal form to receive a refund.

Obtaining a Permit

Students obtain parking permits after registration at the IT Department, when they receive their student ID cards.

Daily Permits

Daily permits can be purchased in the Business Office for $1.00 per day by permit holders who do not have the parking permit with them. Anyone who receives a parking ticket before purchasing a daily permit, must pay the fine.

Visitor Permits

Visitor permits are available at the Information Center or the Customized Training Center.
