This tip is for all the students out there who don’t automatically assume they need a parking pass. Most colleges my friends and family have gone to have required a parking pass, but not all of them will. It’s always best to look into this by, either, going to that college’s website or by visiting the college campus- although some will ticket or tow for parking without a pass, so I’d suggest checking their website or calling/emailing them.
Side note: If you can’t afford a renewed parking pass, I’ve had friends and family milk their expired parking passes before and get away with it. So, if you feel like you can get away with that then feel free because some of the security staff don’t always look close enough. Personally, I would only do this if I absolutely couldn’t afford a renewal as I’m an anxious person and wouldn’t want that weighing over my head during my classes. We’ve all got enough to worry about. I really don’t see why parking passes aren’t free in all colleges considering we pay so much!
