Students who are current permit holders and have not completed enough hours to register
as a sophomore will be in a higher priority category than incoming freshmen who
do not have a permit because of their status as a "renewal" customer.
Renewals have a higher priority than new requests. The only case where this would
not be true is if the customer does not currently own a permit.
Students who miss the registration deadline will be assigned a permit on a first-come,
first-serve basis. For example, an individual who currently holds a permit and
requests to be assigned to the same location, but failed to complete registration
until August 1, 2017 (25 days past the deadline) will be assigned a permit along
with the applicants in priority group 6. In this case it is unlikely this individual
would receive a parking assignment back into their current lot location.
Customers who are assigned to a lot that is not their first choice will be added
to a wait list for each lot that was requested but not received. Wait lists are
moved weekly and individuals whose names reach the top of the wait list for a lot
with a vacancy will be contacted via TAMU email
and offered the opportunity to exchange or purchase the new permit available. ALL
wait list requests expire at the end of EACH academic year.
Up to six wait list choices are allowed, however, all these choices do not have
to be used. Transportation Services STRONGLY ENCOURAGES customers to select only
the lots where they want to park. If Transportation Services is unable to assign
one of their six preferred options, the customer will have the opportunity to select from remaining parking options Aug. 1, by logging in to their My Account. Transportation Services will not assign a lot the customer
did not choose.
