Purchasing a Permit
To purchase online, log in to the Parking & Transportation Web Portal. You may also access the web portal via MyGS under Parking and Transportation > Parking Permits & Citations. Any outstanding parking citations must be settled prior to purchasing a permit. You may also purchase your permit in-office during normal business hours.
Students with a lot preference should purchase their permits as early as possible. Popular parking lots begin selling out a month before classes begin. There is a $5 fee for each additional vehicle registered to a permit. All permit values are pro-rated throughout the academic year.
