Permits for Spring 2016 are available to order NOW. Spring 2016 permits are valid for use from Jan 1 - May 15.
Students, employees who bring a vehicle anywhere near campus must register their vehicle with the College, each semester. Visitors and Vendors should obtain a temporary parking permit from their host employee or the Transportation Office prior to visiting. See the Visitor Parking page for details.
ALL permits are ordered online at: champlain.thepermitstore.com. Applicants will be asked to create a new account in the system (this is different from your Champlain account). Select an account name that you will remember year after year (email is best) and create a password to access the account. Forgotten passwords can be retrieved at any time as long as the applicant can receive emails at the address used to create the account.
The following information is needed to complete a campus parking permit purchase:
If the application is approved a parking permit will be sent in the mail to your campus mail box or home address provided at registration. The permit takes approximately two weeks and comes from The Permit Store (not Champlain) in San Diego, CA so please make sure that you check your mail carefully and do not assume it's junk mail and recycle it. See example of the letter and of what the envelope will look like. While your permit is in the mail, you can print a 10-day temporary permit (from the date of order) to put on your dash. Print this from either the final confirmation screen when you order or in your account at champlain.thepermitstore.com under "View Permi"
Permits are issued by zone detailed below depending on enrollment or employment status with the College, taking into account special needs.

Fees shall be paid in full at registration. Payroll deduction is also available for qualified employees (this option ends after the first week of class).
Affix the decal to the lower drivers side corner of the front windshield. Decals must be clearly visible through the front windshield, so avoid placing behind any tints. Please remove any expired permits from previous semesters. Permits must be properly displayed while in the College's assigned parking zones, including designated city streets. Vehicles not displaying the required permit will be cited for a fine and/or towed at the owner's expense.
No employee or student can receive more than one permit per semester. Two cars may be associated with each permit, but only one registered car may be parked in College zones or designated parking areas at any one time and must display the parking permit decal. The parking permit decals are removable and shall be swapped between cars depending on which one will be brought to campus that day.
Notify firstname.lastname@example.org immediately if your permit is lost or stolen and to request a replacement permit. Once a replacement permit is ordered, the old permit is no longer valid. There is a $10 processing fee for replacement permits.
If you withdraw (or cease College employment) within 14 days of the semester commencing, 100% of the permit cost will be refunded, provided you return your permit to the Champlain Transportation Office within that time and permanently remove your vehicle from the campus.
If you change status from full time to part time within 14 days of the semester commencing, the net difference between full time and part time permit cost will be refunded. Permits are not transferable.
If you sell or otherwise transfer ownership of your vehicle, make sure you remove your permit decal from your vehicle so that you can use it on your new vehicle. Log into your account at champlain.thepermitstore.com to "Manage Vehicles" which allows you to change or update your vehicle information any time. Permits may not be transferred to other individuals or used on vehicles not registered for that permit.
