Parking Permits

All students and employees who operate a motor vehicle on college property must register their vehicle and display a valid parking permit on the vehicle. The permit issued by Mesa Community College is valid at any Maricopa Community College. There is no fee for the parking permit. 

An out-of-state/out-of-county student or employee who operates or parks a motor vehicle on college property must sign an affidavit that the vehicle complies with Arizona Revised Statute 49-542 relating to vehicle emission testing and compliance. Vehicles which do not comply will not be issued a parking permit.

On autos or trucks, parking permits should be placed or affixed on the inside of the lower front windshield (driver's side) so that they may be viewed from the outside. On motorized cycles, the permit shall be placed or affixed where it can be seen without difficulty on the front fender or fork. If there are any questions or problems concerning the parking permit please speak with a Public Safety officer.
