• Parking on Cohort Days

    Student Parking Lot - 2nd Semester 

    Based on your students schedule selection, here is the outcome for parking in the student lot for 2nd semester: 

    Hybrid Schedule - Seniors that are in possession of a 1st/2nd semester parking permit will have access to parking in the student lot on their assigned cohort days.  If your students name is highlighted in red that indicates they still need to pick up their parking permit. Students that need to pick up parking permits can stop by the Greeter’s Desk starting January 6th from 8:30 AM - 3:00 PM. Permits must be displayed on the windshield in the lower left corner (drivers side).  If your students name is on this list you do not have to activate your parking permit.
