  • Citations

    Traffic & Parking Citations

    The Department of Campus Police is responsible for enforcing traffic and parking regulations on all College properties. The College's traffic and parking policies must be observed at all times, including evenings, weekends, during class registration periods, exams and reading days, holidays, semester breaks, and during periods of inclement weather.  Failure to comply with the traffic and parking regulations constitutes a violation that is subject to traffic or parking fines (by means of a citation) and possible referral to the Office of Student Conduct.

    In addition to College policies, all traffic and parking policies regulated by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania apply and are enforced.

    Payment of traffic and parking citations may be made through EBill on the College portal, by mail, or at the Business Office in the Miller Administration Building. Citations are added to your account with the Business Office and unpaid account balances will cause grades and transcripts to be withheld and will not permit class registrations for future semesters.
