Parking

All employees and students at EMCC  are required to have a current EMCC  parking decal. The form for the issuance of parking decals will be strictly online. Completely fill out the form and click on the “submit” button.  The college will issue your decal if the form is complete.  If the form is not filled out correctly, you will receive a notification by email indicating what information needs to be provided.  The Office of Safety & Security will send the decal/decals to you in the mail at the address you provided on the form. The Business Office and Office of Safety & Security will no longer be issuing parking decals at the office.  The ONLY way to receive your parking decal is by using the Parking Decal Registration Form.

Registration and Display of Decals

Vehicles not displaying decals by the end of the first week of classes will be ticketed.  Students must notify the Safety and Security Officer of the Student Life and Facilities Management of their motor vehicle registration.  Furthermore, students bringing vehicles on campus, which do not have decals,  should immediately receive temporary decals from the Safety and Security Manager.

The campus Safety and Security Officer, with the direction of The Director of Student Life and Facilities Management, oversees all campus parking and parking regulations.  Department offices are located in Room 140 in Maine Hall.
