Parking Permits

ADA – State permits may be obtained from the local Secretary of State driver’s license facilities. Many local municipalities also issue permits through their offices. IVCC honors both permits.

Low-emission – Permits are issued by Campus Security, Room C103, for vehicles that are listed on http://www.greenercars.org/greenercars-ratings. These permits are a sticker that is to be placed on the driver’s side of the front windshield.

Staff and faculty – Permits are issued by Campus Security, Room C103. These permits are a hang tag which should be hung from the rearview mirror or placed on the dashboard of the vehicle. One permit per employee is issued. If a staff or faculty member has more than one vehicle, he/she may register all of his/her vehicles with Campus Security and either 1) transfer the parking hang tag between vehicles or 2) call Campus Security when he/she brings the vehicle without the hang tag to campus. Staff and faculty may park in ADA or low-emission parking spaces, but must have the proper ADA or low-emission permit.

Students – Permits are issued by Campus Security, Room C103. These permits are a sticker that is to be placed on the driver’s side of the front windshield. Only one permit is issued per student. Students may register additional cars with campus security. Students may park in ADA or low-emission parking spaces, but must have the proper ADA or low-emission permit.
