All student vehicles must have a parking hang tag displayed on their rear-view mirror.
Student parking is permitted in the large parking lot in front of the Bess Activity Center and the Tinnin Fine Arts Center, in the parking lot between the rear of the Westover building and the Crisp building, and in most other lots around campus, with the exception of housing.
From 7 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, parking on the entire lot in front of the Porter Building, the parking spaces behind and beside the Academic Resource Commons, and parking along the “loop road,” is restricted to handicap permit holders, College visitors, and College employees only.
Students using handicapped spaces must obtain a special permit from the Missouri Department of Revenue. State guidelines are followed for these permits.
Students will be mailed their parking hang tag after completing their admissions application and identity verification.
The Dean of Student Services is authorized to enforce parking rules, and all appeals must be made to that office.
