Student Parking

Student Parking

Parking permits are required to park on campus. Students who wish to park on campus must first take a Start Smart class with a parent before they are eligible to receive a parking permit. All students are required to attend a Start Smart session before they can receive a parking permit.  Any vehicle parked on campus after September 18th without a current 2016-17 parking sticker is subject to a City of San Diego parking ticket.  Parking stickers are available at the Student Store once Start Smart has been completed.  Be sure to bring your completed parking permit registration form with a DMV issued vehicle registration form.
