PARKING PERMIT REQUIREMENTS

‚ÄčA valid parking permit is required to park on campus.  Permit requirements are enforced:
                   Monday through Sunday between 7:00 AM and 10:00 PM, excluding district holidays.

Purchase and/or possession of a permit does not authorize parking on campus. It is the responsibility of the driver to properly park the vehicle and to properly display a valid and authorized permit.

Restricted areas, including disabled parking, red zones, loading zones, staff parking, and time zones, are enforced every day, 24-hours a day. Overnight parking is prohibited without prior authorization from the District Police.

SEMESTER-LENGTH PARKING PERMITS

Semester-length parking permits are the most convenient permit option for students who will be on campus regularly.

Due to the profound impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our community, and as a one-time COVID-19 relief measure, West Valley College and Mission College will be providing all registered students with Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 semester length parking permits at no cost.

To receive a permit at no cost, students must order their permit by logging in to the student portal and ordering via the student permit sales link (please see your college's webiste to access the student portal. Student ID number, car make, model, year, and license plate number are required at time of order. A printable temporary permit will be immediately provided by email if the permit ordered is currently in use.

Students may also be able to pick up a no cost permit at the Admissions and Records office when that office reopens for onsite services. However, students are strongly encouraged to confirm office hours and permit availability with the Admissions and Records office before visiting.

Semester Parking Permits are valid for use at both West Valley College and Mission College.  To be valid, all permits must be displayed on the front dashboard and the entire permit, including the expiration date, must be visible from the outside of the vehicle.

ONE-DAY "DAILY" PARKING PERMITS

Students may purchase a one-day "daily" parking permit at any of the daily permit dispensers located throughout the parking lots.  Daily permits are $3.00 per day and all dispensers will accept cash, coins, and credit cards.

PARKING GRACE PERIODS

FALL & SPRING SEMESTERS
A student parking "grace period" will be observed during the week immediately prior to the start of the Fall and Spring semesters and during the first week of these semesters.  During the grace period, no parking citation will be issued to any vehicle that is parked in a marked student parking stall without a permit; all other parking violations will still be enforced.

The specific dates of the Fall and Spring semester grace periods can be found in the parking information section of the class schedule.

SUMMER & WINTER SESSIONS
There are no student parking "grace periods" offered during any of the summer or winter sessions.  All vehicles parked on campus during these sessions must have a valid parking permit properly displayed at all times.
