Unpaid Citations and Parking Holds

Don’t forget to pay your parking tickets. Please go to www.bloomsburg.thepermitstore.com to pay your parking tickets. Three (3) unpaid parking citations will result in your vehicle being booted and possibly towed. A boot removal fee of $25 will be assessed. All citations must be paid before the immobilizing device is removed. Any student with citations which have not been paid by April 25, 2014 will have a HOLD placed on their student account. If a hold is placed on your student account, classes may not be scheduled, transcripts may not be received and you may not purchase a parking permit for the Summer 2014 semester. Should you have a citation you wish to pay which has resulted in a hold on your account, please contact Jamie Tingley at 570-389-4768 or Sue Snyder at 570-389-4949.
