Purchasing Your Permit

Permits must be paid for at the time the permit is picked up.  The only exception are annual permits being paid via payroll deduction.  We accept personal checks, cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and AMEX.


Faculty and staff may return their semester permit for a full refund through September 11, 2014.

Annual permits may be returned at any time and a pro-rated refund will be given based on the number of months remaining on the permit.  Annual permits purchased via payroll deduction must be returned anytime an employee resigns or leaves the University.  The payroll deduction will be stopped ONLY upon return of the permit.  In order to stop payroll deduction, the permit should be returned by the fifteenth (15) day of the month prior to the next deduction or payment for the next month will be deducted.  Employees who have elected payroll deduction are responsible for the entire amount of the annual permit, whether or not they use the permit for a given semester unless they return the permit PRIOR to the beginning of the semester.
