If Parking Services does not receive payment for fines, or submission of a first appeal, within 10 days from the date of citation issuance, an additional, one–time $10 late fee will accrue. Payments sent through the United States Postal Service must be postmarked within seven days of citation issuance. Payments sent through campus mail must be received by the 10th day of citation issuance. Lost, stolen, or misplaced citations do not excuse the late fee.

All student accounts with citations 10 days past due will be blocked regardless of the amount. Accounts must be paid in full for the block to be removed. In addition to blocking accounts, grade transcripts may be withheld until the account is paid in full.

Faculty and staff fines may be handled as a payroll deduction, as an offset against the Commonwealth of Virginia Vendor Debt Setoff Program, and/or assessed against any other money due you from the university. Nonpayment of fines may result in blocked class registration and/or withheld grade transcripts. Outstanding fines may also be given to a collection agency. Accounts sent to collections will be assessed an additional collection cost.

When a vehicle is found to be in violation, fines are assessed to:

  • the person, company, corporation, or firm in whose name the vehicle is registered with at the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles or the corresponding agency of another state or nation
  • the person who purchased the University permit displayed on the vehicle
  • the son, daughter, spouse, or ward of the registered owner enrolled in or employed at Virginia Tech
