1. Payment of Parking Fines: Anyone who receives a parking citation may pay by cash, check, money order, credit card, or debit card. If the individual is a student, he or she may also use the all-campus card.

2. Students – Past Due Parking Fines: Any student who has an outstanding parking fine that has not been paid within thirty days, will have a “hold” placed on his or her account. Once a “hold” has been placed on an account, the student cannot register for classes until the Transportation Department has received the full amount of the outstanding balance. The balance cannot be paid through the Cashier’s Office. It must be paid directly to the NCSU Transportation Department.

3. Faculty/Staff Past-Due Accounts: Faculty/staff who fail to pay their parking fines within thirty days will be payroll deducted. Temporary employees who have past due parking fines will be treated as “Individuals not Associated with the University” (refer to the following collection procedure).

4. Parking Fines Issued to Individuals not Associated with the University: Individuals not associated with the University will be charged interest on all parking citations that are outstanding for 60 days or longer. The current interest rate is 8% per year. In addition to interest charges, accounts that are outstanding for 90 days or longer will be charged a 10% handling fee and will be turned over to a collection agency for processing. If the account is turned over to a collection agency, payment must be made directly to the collection agency.

5. Payment for “Boot” Removal: Once an individual has received at least (6) six parking citations, whether paid or unpaid, the individual’s vehicle may be booted or towed, if found in violation of NCSU parking regulations. Once an individual’s vehicle has been booted or towed, the individual must pay all outstanding fines prior to getting the boot removed or their automobile released by the towing company. Prior to 5:00 p.m., payment may be made by cash, check, money order, credit card, or debit card. If the individual is a student, he/she may also use the all-campus card. After 5:00 p.m., money orders are the only form of payment accepted for removal of the “boot”.
