Permit Exchanges 

Classification Change

Permit types are issued based on the individual's classification (i.e. faculty/staff, housing student, commuter student, non-affiliate, etc.) with UCO. If an individual's classification changes after purchasing a parking permit, that permit can be exchanged by emailing the TPS office at no additional cost. Proof of change of classification is required.

Evening Permit

Commuter students with an Evening permit may exchange for an annual Commuter permit at any point during the year. The cost to exchange is the current price of an annual permit minus the current price of the Evening permit. Commuter permits may only be returned in exchange for an Evening permit within the first two weeks of the fall or spring semester.

Permit Refunds

Parking permits requested to be returned to the TPS Office within three weeks of the date of purchase will be offered a full refund. Other criteria for a full or limited refund, at the discretion of TPS, include fall graduation, military deployment, or study abroad programs.

Fall Graduation

Degree Certification will provide a list of students graduating to TPS. Students will receive communication to their UCO email containing the conditions to qualify for the refund. These students are eligible to submit a request for a refund of one-half of the annual permit value, which will be credited to the student account if all conditions are met within the time allotted.

Military Deployment

Members of the U.S. military deployed during the fall semester are eligible for a full refund upon request and with proof of deployment. Spring and summer deployments are eligible for a refund of the incomplete and following terms if purchased prior to the spring term.

Study Abroad

Students participating in a study abroad program are eligible for a refund of one-half of the annual permit value, with documentation from the Study Abroad Office.

Practicum Requirement

Students who have purchased an annual permit and will be completing a required practicum off campus for degree completion are eligible for a partial refund dependent on when the request is submitted. Documentation of enrollment in the practicum is required.
