I received a citation:

Citations that are not appealed within 21 calendar days or paid within 21 calendar days may be subject to the following actions:

  • Vehicle impoundment in accordance with WAC 132H-116-085;
  • Denial of future parking privileges, whether student, employee, or visitors

I have a Disability Placard:

Drivers with a valid disability placard may park in any Student, Employee or Visitor lot, in any available parking space, including, but not limited to, ADA stalls. Placards must be displayed to avoid a citation.

What should I do if I have a placard, but I receive a citation?

Your citation may be waived as long as you bring your placard, state issued identification, and Blue or Red Card to Public Safety Parking office as soon as possible. The placard must belong to the driver of the vehicle.

Citations may not be waived if the citation is not a parking permit violation.

I would like to be considered for a need-based parking waiver.

Waivers are not offered directly through the Public Safety Department. However, there are programs on campus which do offer various programs and assistance to those who qualify. Participating Bellevue College programs include:

My Parking Pass was lost or stolen.

In the event that your parking permit is lost or stolen, contact the parking office as soon as possible. The permanent sticker will be deactivated. Unauthorized use will result in a $60 fine and a referral to Student Conduct.

I have additional questions about parking, permits or the citation process.

For any additional questions, please contact the parking office:
