How will the Fall 2020 Parking Transition Affect Me?

We created a parking transition guide to assist you through our August transition and beyond.

fall 2020 payroll deduction cancelation

To cancel employee parking payroll deduction, or use the new daily permit option, complete this Google Form by 11:59 p.m. August 14, 2020.

In order to most efficiently utilize our campus parking inventory, individuals who cancel their permits are not guaranteed their original parking assignment if they choose to re-enroll in campus parking in the future. Upon re-enrollment, they may be assigned to other locations based on space availability. Departments will not be able to hold spaces for employees who choose to cancel their permits.

Request a daily permit through by completing this Google Form at least two business days before you need to park.  DOTS staff will review your completed request and add the permits to your parking account.  You will then receive an email with information about online payment and instructions for using the permits. View daily permit details.

how to register for parking

Speak with your department's transportation coordinator to register for a parking permit and learn about your parking options. Your transportation coordinator will assign you to a campus parking lot. All parking lots on campus are managed through Campus License Plate Registration (CLPR). CLPR is a system that uses your existing state-issued license plate number to assign and enforce parking privileges.

Lots Z and 1

Your parking registration is valid for your primary assigned lot and overflow lots. You may be directed to park in your overflow lots if a special event or construction impacts your assigned lot. Faculty and staff overflow lots are Lots K, P, U, V, X, XX1, Z, Stadium Drive Garage or any lot on campus that begins with a number EXCEPT for Lot 2.

You may add up to four vehicles to your parking registration. However, only one vehicle may be parked on campus at a time. Full details and restrictions are available in our parking regulations.

for umGc faculty and staff

UMGC evening faculty and staff do not need a permit to park in the unrestricted parking areas after 4:00 p.m. daily, and all day on weekends and university-observed holidays. However, UMGC faculty and staff must register and properly display a current valid permit/decal to park in the faculty/staff restricted parking areas.

You will need to update your parking registration if your vehicle license plate number has changed, or if you are driving a new vehicle that is not currently on your permit. To make these changes to your parking permit, please log in to your parking account and update your vehicle information before arriving to campus. 

If you wish to change your parking lot assignment, please speak with your department's transportation coordinator. 

FOR NEW EMPLOYEES

Your department's transportation coordinator will assist you in obtaining your parking permit and completing the required forms below. These forms must be authorized by the transportation coordinator prior to visiting the DOTS office at Regents Drive Garage.

Daily Permit (New Fall 2020)

The daily permit is a digital, single-use permit meant to accommodate those who need to park on campus 1, 2, or 3 days per week. It is our hope that this new, flexible parking option can accommodate blended learning and work arrangements. Each time you use a permit, you must activate it through your NuPark account before parking on campus. The permit must be activated on the day you plan to use it.  

Daily permits are $12 each, and are sold in increments of five. A five-permit pack costs $60. These permits are not refundable, but the balance from unused permits can be applied to your parking account.

Faculty and staff using these permits can park in their previously assigned lot, or the closest available faculty/staff parking area for employees who chose not to renew or purchase a campus permit.

BUNDLE PACKS - NOT AVAILABLE FALL 2020

Bundle packs will not be sold during the Fall 2020 semester. If you have unused hang tag permits from a previous bundle pack purchase, we will honor those.

carpool permits - NOT AVAILABLE FALL 2020

Since many employees and students will continue to learn or work from home, we will suspend our carpool permits this year and introduce new benefits for carpoolers in the future. We welcome your feedback as we re-envision our carpool and green vehicle permit incentives.

other options

View our parking regulations to see other available parking permits, such as alumni permits, emeritus permits, retiree permits and after-hours permits.   

PRE-TAX PAYROLL DEDUCTION 

Payroll deduction registrations are a pre-tax benefit deducted from your paycheck over the course of 20 pay periods. Deductions are not taken over the summer. Employees who are hired during the summer before August 7, 2019 are required to pay for their permit using cash, check, or card payment until payroll deduction resumes in the fall. Payment options for the summer permit are available. 

Enrollment and Confirmation

Your transportation coordinator will assist you in pre-tax payroll deduction enrollment. Upon completing and submitting the required forms, you will see deductions begin up to two pay periods after enrolling. To confirm that deductions are being taken, employees may look under taxes/deductions for “20-PAY PARKING” on pay statements.

Missed Payments 

It is the responsibility of the employee to contact DOTS if deductions are missed for any reason. As long as the registration is active and payroll deduction is in place, the registrant is responsible for all payments. 

Although parking fees are deducted at a pre-tax rate, DOTS cannot give pre-tax rates for missed payments. The employee is responsible for any missed deductions.

Cancellation

Payroll deduction registrations do not expire and it is the responsibility of the employee to cancel the parking registration when it is no longer needed and to send the payroll deduction cancellation form to DOTS.

Summer Permit Payment Options

Two payment options are available when activating a permit during the summer months:

1. Pay the entire sum at the time of activation.

2. Defer the payment for up to 45 days.  Full or incremental payments may be made at any time during that 45 day period.

Individuals who pursue the deferred payment option should go to the DOTS office to obtain a temporary permit and make arrangements to pay for the summer permit ​​during the next 45 days. ​Permit payments ​can be made in any size increment, as long as the permit is paid off by the end of the 45 days. If the permit is not paid off by the end of the 45 days, the temporary permit is no longer valid, and the employee does not possess a valid permit to park on campus. Refunds for partial payments will not be processed.

CASH, CHECK or CREDIT CARD REGISTRATIONS

Employees wishing to pay cash, check or credit card for their parking registration will need to have their transportation coordinator renew their parking registration on a yearly basis, or as needed.
