PARKING PERMITS REQUIRED NEXT SEMESTER!
As we get ready for the Spring 2023 semester, we want to let you know that the College is launching a virtual parking permit process! When you purchase your required permit to park on campus, it will now be virtual. This means there is no paper permit to keep track of or sticker to put on your vehicle.
All students taking in-person classes and parking on campus will be required to register their vehicle license plates when purchasing parking permits. VCCCD Police will use automated license plate readers to verify vehicles parked on campus have the required permits.
The cost is $30-$58 for the semester, depending on your vehicle type and California College Promise Grant (CCPG) eligibility. Single-use daily permits will also be available through PayMyCite.com. Daily permits are $2 and can be purchased here or by scanning the QR code found on parking signage throughout the campus parking lots.
Purchase a permit on the MyVCCCD portal under the Marketplace tab. For step-by-step instructions, visit Parking Information. Parking permit fees are used to fund critical safety measures on the campuses.
Any vehicle not properly parked or parked out of compliance with regulations is subject to citation.
For more information about parking on campus, visit VCCCD Parking Information.
