The following reasons are NOT grounds to appeal a citation:

  • Other vehicles were also parked improperly
  • Late to class or appointment

You may appeal a citation for situations other than those listed above. Citations may be appealed online, or with an appeal form obtained at Transportation Services in Adams Hall, within 10 days of citation issuance. Payment of the citation fine must accompany an appeal letter. If the appeal and payment of the fine are not received within 10 days, appeals will not be reviewed, and the fine must be paid. The decision of the appeal review is final and not subject to further appeal.

The primary method of making an appeal is in writing. An appellant may also request to make an oral presentation at the appeal hearing in support of the written appeal. Appellants should generally arrange for oral presentations only when the appeal cannot adequately be explained in writing. Oral presentations should be concise and limited to five minutes.

Appeal Review Schedule

Appeals are reviewed once a month, typically in Cascade Hall or Adams Hall. Letters stating the results are sent a week after the review.

Parking at Oregon State University is governed by Division 30 of the Oregon State University Standards.
