Citations

To avoid late fees, please pay a citation within 10 days of the date that it was issued.  You can submit a payment online, or by mailing a check.  Online payments are recorded immediately. Check payments are recorded the day they are received in the mail. 

Helpful Tip: Please do not ignore a citation. When issued, a citation creates a balance on your account. If your balance is outstanding for more than 30 days, it may be sent to collections.

Appeals

You are welcome to file an appeal after receiving a citation.  Your appeal will be reviewed only if it is submitted within 10 days of the date of the citation. 

Helpful tip: Appealed citations are placed on “hold” during the review and decision process. Once a decision is made, communication will be sent via email, if on file, or by regular mail. If the decision is to uphold or reduce the citation, you then have 10 days to pay the outstanding amount. Failure to pay the citation may result in additional penalties.

Appeal decisions are final.  Please see University Standard 07-025 Section 5.7.7.c for details.
