OFFICE OF THE BURSAR
Starting with the Fall 2002 term, the University of Southern Indiana
has changed the structure of the parking permit fee.
This fee structure change was reviewed and recommended by
the Student Government Association. The new fee is called the
transportation and parking fee.
This fee is now mandatory for all students with the exception
of students who are taking only distance education or off campus
courses. In 2001, when the fee was optional, over 97% of our on
campus students paid the parking permit fee. Therefore, changing
this fee to a mandatory fee affects only a small percentage of
the student population who had opted for an exemption in the past.
The benefits of the transportation and parking fee will be
realized by all students on campus. The fee will fund not only
parking lot improvement projects, but will help fund the campus
shuttle bus operation and pedestrian projects such as the shortcut
trail through the woods along Clarke Lane.
This fee change also allows the University to simplify parking
procedures and enforcement for students, parents and visitors.
We have eliminated the parking hang tags or decals for our
students. Therefore, students will no longer be issued parking
tickets for forgetting to display their hang tag. These new
policies will also allow us to be more friendly to parents and
other visitors because campus guests will now be allowed to park
on any campus lot (other than the pay lot) without being issued a
parking ticket for a missing hang tag. For more information on
parking regulations, please visit www.usi.edu/security/vehicle.asp.
