Use of Parking Access Cards

Purchasing Parking Access Cards /Adding Dollars to Card
Parking access cards can be purchased at the tuition window. If you already have a parking access card, additional dollars can be added to the parking access card either by using the website http://saintpaulcollege.myparkingfees.com/ or by going to the Tuition Office.

This means card holders can control how much money they want to spend for parking by adding money to the card. But be careful not to add too much money onto the card. There are no refunds of remaining dollars or days on your access card should you graduate, get expelled, or leave Saint Paul College for any reason. The only exception to this is if you do a full withdraw within the add/drop period (the first 5 days of the semester or first day if the course starts later in the semester).

You are responsible for recharging your access card; therefore, it is your responsibility to purchase the correct amount of dollars or days you need while attending Saint Paul College.

Use your parking access card every time you enter or exit
You must use your parking access card every time you enter or exit Saint Paul College parking lots. If this is not done, the parking access system will not allow you to enter or exit depending on if you didn’t use it to enter or to exit the lots. This must be done even if the arms are in a raised position. Saint Paul College will rarely have a day with free parking. If this were to occur, Saint Paul College would broadcast this via email.

If you do not use your access card while exiting, you will be charged for all days until you use your access card again to exit. It is very important to use the intercom system if you are experiencing any problems while entering or exiting.

Use of short-term parking ticket
If you request a short term parking ticket from the Marshall Avenue Visitor lane upon entering the lot, you must use that short term parking ticket and pay even if you possess a parking access card.

Use intercom system if you need help to exit/enter parking lot
If you are experiencing any issues with the parking access system, please use the intercom button located on every column and pay in the lane machines to ask for help. The intercom will connect you to the Parking Office and the Public Safety front desk. We are available to assist you with any issue you are experiencing.

If you do not use your access card while exiting, you will be charged for all days until you use your access card again to exit. It is very important to use the intercom system if you are experiencing any problems while entering or exiting.
