  • Signing up on the waitlist does not guarantee receiving a sophomore parking permit. If sophomore permits are sold out, you can purchase a UCC/freshman lot permit from Transportation and Parking Services.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem.  The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
