See below for Rules & Regulations pertaining to parking citations, appeals and fines.

All fines are due within seven (7) calendar days of issuance.

Citations & Fines
"Only Violation Policy". If the violation is the first and only violation incurred during the current fiscal year (Sep 1 – Aug 31 ) and is less than or equal to $35, it will be voided automatically. “Only” citations need not be paid; no further action is required. If a second violation is issued during the fiscal year, the owner/operator is responsible for paying all violations.

Individuals with outstanding fines will not be allowed to purchase new permits/passes until the fines are paid in full. Outstanding fines can also result in loss of parking access, immobilization of vehicle, or the vehicle being towed.

Fines for violations are printed on each citation placed on vehicles.
  • Employees - All fines are due within seven calendar days of the issue date. If fines are not paid within seven days, an invoice will be sent. If payment is not received, permit termination action will be initiated. Subsequent vehicle registration will be withheld and permits will not be reissued until all outstanding fines have been addressed. Commute option termination will be initiated.

  • Students - All fines are due within seven calendar days of the issue date. If fines are not paid within seven days, the fines will be charged to the student's bursar account. Students with delinquent accounts could have academic records placed on hold. Registration materials, transcripts, and grade reports could be withheld pending settlement of all accounts per Student Account policy.
Fines are payable online at, in person at the Parking Office with cash, check or credit card or by mail. Do not send cash through the mail. See contact information on the citation.

Any vehicle owner/operator receiving a parking violation notice may contest that violation if there are grounds for appeal. Appeals of violation notices must be submitted to the TPS Appeals Committee (in writing) within seven (7) calendar days of the violation. Lack of knowledge of these regulations does not constitute valid grounds for appeal.

Citation appeals must be received within seven (7) calendar days of the date of issuance. The elapse of seven calendar days results in the violator's forfeiture of the right to appeal the citation.

Appeals for parking violations are heard by the TPS Appeals Committee. This committee is composed of employee and student representatives. The committee meets monthly during the academic year to adjudicate written appeals. The appellant will be notified of the committee's decision in writing after the appeal hearing. The committee's decision will be reached on the merits of the submitted written appeal and with regard to Emory's parking regulations. If the committee upholds the citation, the fine must be paid within seven (7) calendar days.

Appeals may be submitted in one of the following ways:
