All vehicles on Grand View campus property without a current GV campus decal properly displayed, appropriately parked in the designated parking lot, may receive a citation and/or be subject to towing at the owner’s expense.
An improperly parked vehicle may receive two tickets in one day: one during the morning hours (midnight to noon) and a second during the afternoon hours (noon to 11:59 p.m.).
Students, faculty, and staff will be held responsible for any tickets that are issued to their registered vehicle, regardless of the date the citation was issued or who was driving the car at the time the citation was issued.
All parking fines will be applied to the student’s account and may be paid in the business office. Following is the fine schedule for parking policy violations:
- No decal: $20
- Decal improperly displayed: $20
- Illegal parking in staff or visitor parking: $20
- Parking in wrong lot: $20
- Not parking between yellow lines: $20
- Exceeding designated time limits: $20
- Illegal parking in disabled space:* $50
- Parking in loading zones or fire lanes: $50
- Obstructing traffic: $20
- Failure to move vehicle when required: $20
- Parking along yellow or marked curbs: $50
- Other infractions: $20
*In addition to listed fine, illegal parking in a disabled space may result in fines from City of Des Moines authorities, and vehicle may be towed at owner’s expense. Temporary campus decals are available if needed.
Right to Appeal
All students have the right to appeal a citation written to their vehicle. A parking appeal form must be completed and submitted to the Student Life Office within 10 days of the date of citation. All appeals made after the 10-day deadline will be denied. If more than one citation is being appealed, a separate appeal form must be completed for each ticket. Ignorance of parking policy is not an acceptable base for appeal.
Appeals will be reviewed by the Parking Committee, a standing committee of faculty, staff, and students. Meetings of the Parking Committee are closed to everyone except committee members.
