Parking Citations may be appealed by completing a Parking Citation Appeal form online here or at the Security and Environmental Health and Safety Office within 5 business days of receiving the citation. Appeals will not be accepted after the 5th day. Results of appeals may include denial of appeal, reduction in fine or approval of appeal and dismissal of parking citation.
Parking Citations should be paid to the Cashier’s office located in the main building. Parking Citations that are paid within 2 business days of receiving the citation will be granted a 50% discount.
Failure to pay a citation will initially result in a “HOLD” being placed on your student account, which means that you will not be allowed access to transcripts, grades, registration, or other Walla Walla Community College academic processes.
Once a vehicle has received 3 unpaid parking citations, the Security and Environmental Health and Safety Department may apply a vehicle-booting device to immobilize the vehicle. The Security and Environmental Health and Safety Department will only remove the vehicle boot once documentation has been provided that all current parking citations have been paid in full and an additional $25.00 vehicle boot fee has been paid.
If a vehicle becomes eligible to be booted for a 2nd time under the same circumstances as described above, the same process will occur, however a $50.00 vehicle boot fee will be applied.
Any questions or concerns regarding the information provided above should be sent to the Assistant Director of Security and Environmental Health and Safety for Walla Walla Community College at [email protected] or by calling 509.526.SAFE (7233).
