Due to space limitations, parking is often difficult on both Main Campus and West Campus. To avoid costly parking tickets, we urge to download and carefully read the Traffic Rules and Regulations Brochure and obey all traffic rules.
If you have questions about parking, check our Parking FAQ.
Parking Ticket Appeal Process
Dispute a Parking Ticket
The Appeal Process
- A written appeal is reviewed by the Director of Campus Police
- The Director of Campus Police evaluates the appeal based on guidelines and criteria established in the Traffic Rules and Regulations
- The appellant is informed by mail of the decision
The Campus Police Office accepts appeals of parking tickets. Any parking ticket may be appealed. A completed appeal form (forms are available from the Campus Police Office) must be received in the Campus Police Office within 10 calendar days from the date the parking ticket was issued. Parking tickets may also be appealed on-line.
Definitions of Appeals Actions
DENIED means that the parking ticket has been upheld as valid under Forsyth Tech traffic rules and regulations and payment must be made within ten days.
REDUCED means that the Director of Campus Police agrees there was a violation of Forsyth Tech traffic rules and regulations, but that mitigating circumstances presented in your appeal warrant a reduced fine. Payment of the reduced fine is required and must be paid within ten days.
GRANTED means that the appeal was approved and the fine was waived.
