DPR Frequently Asked Questions

Your license plate is your permit beginning Fall 2021

Beginning fall semester 2021, Transportation Services transitions to virtual permit parking. Cameras and license plate recognition software will be used to verify parking permissions. Your license plate is your permit, rather than a hangtag. Customers with virtual permits must register their plate, pay for parking permissions, and display their license plate toward the drive aisle.

What is different about the business permit?

Starting the 2021-2022 permit year, Business permits will have two options. If your employee is utilizing the business spaces, or lots around campus then a Business permit will be all you need. If you prefer to use the garages with your business permit, then the Business+ option is what you will need to purchase. Throughout the year if you notice you are not using the garages as frequently as you thought, you can return the Business+ permit and order a Business permit. Conversely, if you find you need garage access, you can return the Business permit, and order the Business+ permit, at any time. Since the permits are virtual, you will have immediate access to them through the DPR account which allows you to assign them as needed and will provide the assigned custodian immediate Business/Business+ accessibility. As always, a Business/Business+ permit must be used in conjunction with active A&M permit. Your DPR account will continue to show you your employees who have an active permit.

How do I get the business permit to the employee to use?

No longer must you physically hand out a permit. Simply login to the DPR account and assign/reassign them as needed throughout the day or semester. Since the permits are virtual, once you have added the Business/Business+ to an employee with an active permit, the assigned employee will have immediate Business/Business+ accessibility. Assigning and tracking your business permits will be easier than ever.
