On-Campus Parking Decal Fee

Student parking permits for the Main Campus cost $85 per semester. Permits are sold in-person at the Bursar's Office or online at Corsair Connect. If you have purchased a parking decal for the SMC Main Campus, this decal may be used for parking at any of the satellite and shu ttle transit parking areas as well.

An on-campus parking decal does not guarantee you a parking space. It entitles you to use on-campus student parking areas on a space-available, first come, first serve basis. Your parking decal is for on-campus parking only—it is not a residential (street) parking permit. The parking decal fee is not refundable after the third week of a Fall or Spring Semester and after the second week of a Summer or Winter session. 

Students who receive benefits under Temporary Aid for Needy Families (TANF) or a general assistance program should contact the Bursar's Office for a possible parking fee reduction. Parking decals are required to park at SMC’s Main campus. Free satellite-campus-only parking decals are required for the Bundy Campus, AET or the Airport Arts Campus, and parking at these sites is free for students attending classes there.
