How to Order a Student Parking Pass
Parking pass registration forms are typically mailed to students in early July. To request a parking pass for the following year, return the completed form with payment to One-Stop Student Services, 60 Cleveland Ave., Columbus, OH 43215.
Please be aware that you must pay for the pass at the time you order it. Do not send cash through the mail—cash payments are accepted only at the One-Stop Student Services office in the Crane Center. Checks can be mailed, taken to the One-Stop, or submitted through CCAD’s ePayment site (accessible through the Self Service tab at the top of www.ccad.edu.) Credit card payments must be made through ePayment—the One-Stop does not accept credit cards either over the phone or at their office. For more on using ePayment, click here. You can also contact One Stop Student Services at 614.222.3295 with questions about payment options.
If your completed form and payment are received by Aug. 1, your parking pass will be mailed to you. If they are received after Aug. 1, your parking pass will be available for pick-up at the Safety & Security office (Administration Building) at the beginning of the semester. No pass will be provided until payment is received.
Different Parking Passes and Permits
Regular Parking Pass
The cost for a regular parking pass is $150 for the academic year. Students using a regular parking pass may park in any campus lots designed for students—except for the overnight parking lot.
Students using this pass must vacate all campus lots by 2 a.m. and may not return to the lot until 6 a.m. Violators will be ticketed and risk having their car towed after multiple violations.
Parking pass fees are nonrefundable.
Overnight Parking Pass
The cost for an overnight parking pass is $650 for the academic year. Payment must be made by cash, check, or charge. Financial aid funds cannot be used unless you have a credit on your CCAD account after tuition and fees have been deducted for the semester.
Parking pass fees are nonrefundable.
Students parking overnight are encouraged to park in the lot on the SW corner of Cleveland Avenue and Gay Street. This lot is reserved at all times for college employees and students parking overnight. Overnight parking is also permitted in the lots on the south, north, and west sides of Design Square Apartments, but these lots are also available to students with daytime parking permits until 2 a.m. Lots will not be monitored 24 hours a day. Security staff will periodically patrol this area as they do the rest of campus, but no one will be stationed there full-time.
Students with valid parking registrations who wish to park a vehicle different from the one registered for a short period of time can get a free temporary parking permit in the Safety & Security Office.
Students without valid parking registrations can purchase temporary permits from the Safety & Security Office. Daytime permits are $5 per day and are valid from 7 a.m. until 2 a.m. of the following date. Temporary overnight permits are $10 per day and are valid from 7 a.m. until 7 a.m. of the following date.
Temporary permits must be clearly visible through the vehicle’s front windshield and are valid only for the dates indicated on the permit. Temporary permit holders are subject to all CCAD student parking policies.
Visitor Parking Permits
Visitor permits are for individuals visiting campus who are neither students nor employees. (Visitor spaces are not temporary parking places for employees or students.) Visitor permits are available in the Safety & Security office and are valid only for the date indicated on the permit. They must be placed on the vehicle so that they are clearly visible. Visitors are subject to all parking rules and regulations. Parking permits for the overnight guests of resident students must be obtained through Residence Life staff.
Those who would like to replace a damaged permit or change a permit to cover a different vehicle can do so at the Safety & Security office for no charge in exchange for the original permit. There is a $25 fee to replace a lost permit or to register a different vehicle without the return of the previously issued permit.
Parking Rules & Regulations
Traffic and parking regulations are enforced. Those who violate these regulations may receive a fine and/or have their cars towed beginning with the first parking violation.
Where to Park
College-owned lots are marked with standard CCAD signs. Employees may park in any CCAD lot, but must first fill up the lots designated for faculty and staff. Students are not permitted to park in lots designated for faculty and staff. No unauthorized person is permitted to park in handicapped or reserved parking spaces.
Vehicles Will Be Ticketed and/or Towed if:
• They are parked at the end of a row so that the entire vehicle is not directly in front of a block or within painted parking lines.
• They are blocking doors to buildings.
• They are blocking parked cars.
• They are parked in such a way as to make it difficult for cars to exit from authorized parking spaces or parking lots.
Tickets, Fines, and Towing
Tickets are issued and fines can be levied for violations of the parking rules (for example, parked improperly or not displaying a current permit in the lower left rear windshield)—starting with the first violation. Fines must be paid at the One Stop in the Loann Crane Center. In addition, parking violations may result in the vehicle being towed (beginning with the first violation). Towing charges are levied on the vehicle by the towing company and cannot be waived or reimbursed by CCAD. If you park in a lot not owned by CCAD, the owner of the lot may have your car towed. Having your car towed is very expensive and inconvenient. Please review the campus map carefully to make certain you park only in lots owned or leased by CCAD.
How to Appeal a Parking Ticket
To appeal a parking ticket:
• Pick up a parking ticket appeal form from the Safety & Security Office.
• Return the completed form within 14 days of the disputed citation.
• The Director of Safety & Security will review the appeal within one week.
• It is your responsibility to contact the Safety & Security Office for the status of your appeal.
Please note that even if a fine is waived, the offense may still be recorded.
