Physical Disability Parking & Medical Decals
Students who are medically impaired may be issued a temporary MEDICAL PERMIT by TPS that allows for parking in faculty/staff, commuter, and housing lots. Medical Permit holders may also park in Pay-to-Park, and metered lots at no charge. A medical permit must be displayed with a purchased, valid UCO decal. A physician's statement may be required stating the nature and length of the impairment. Medical permits will be issued for no more than six weeks per academic year. A state issued temporary physical disability placard will be required for impairments longer than six weeks. Vehicles displaying a temporary medical permit, along with the appropriate UCO decal, are not allowed to park in physical disability spaces. They may park in any other legal parking spaces on campus that are not designated/reserved for other uses.
Applications for Oklahoma Physical Disability placards are available at the TPS Office.
Authorized users must display both the Physical Disability placard, and a valid UCO decal.
Vehicles displaying a state issued Physical Disability decal, along with a valid UCO decal, may park in any legal parking space or any physical disability space, with the exception of spaces reserved for other uses, i.e., child services, service/maintenance, delivery vehicles, etc. Persons needing access to parking controlled by a gate will have to register their vehicle and Physical Disability decal with TPS to get a gate access card.
Any vehicles that display a valid stated issued Physical Disability decal must register it with us at our office (NUC 309A). A vehicle with a valid UCO decal and a Physical Disability decal can park in the NUC Pay Lot at no charge and metered parking does not have to be paid.
Vehicles that do not display a valid physical disability decal in a designated physical disability space will be fined $100.00 and impounded at owner's expense.
